Previous Extravaganza Highlights Have Included:
Vintage displays of nearly 1000 classic cars from pre and post war, including Classic American cars, plus literally hundreds of motorbikes and scooters, bicycles from the early 1900s to the modern era, full size and miniature traction engines and steam rollers, stationary engines, model engineering, great displays of buses and coaches (some of which you can ride on around the site!), military vehicles, emergency and commercial vehicles, industrial trucks and vintage caravans.
Two live arenas with live commentary to non-stop parades and demonstrations.
The Alec Tanner Arena showcases classic vehicles from across the ages on two and four wheels.
The Steam Playpen does exactly what it says on the tin, steam engines at play showcasing a wide variety of steam power with accompanying commentary.
Vintage Fun Fair
All the fun of the fair including steam powered Gallopers, Electric Yachts, Big Wheel, Waltzer and traditional “Penny Arcade” side shows. Ride on Chuffy The Train around the show.
Countryside and Animal Arenas
From ferret racing, rare breeds, shire horses and horse-logging to beehive-making – it’s all here among the rural displays and educational demonstrations. The popular dog show will make its return, with all money raised going to Teckels animal shelter – and with 2024 being the International Year of Camelids, ‘Camels through the Ages’ will be making its event debut. This entertaining show features fabulous costumes and informative commentary, to provide an insight into the long history of camel use and culture!
Trade Stands and Craft Tent
Music and Dance
NEW FOR 2024: Swinging you back in time – Be sure to visit the new vintage entertainment tent, featuring live music, lindy hop dancing, vintage hair, and fashion through the eras. Why not dress up in your vintage finery and enter the ‘Best Dressed’ competition? Guest musicians include one of the premier Big Bands in the South West: The Midwest Big Band. This 18-piece Big Band has within its ranks some of the very best local talent – including professional conductor Bob Cutting (ex-Herb Miller band) – and will perform music from Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and golden tracks from the legends of swing. There will also be music throughout the weekend in the beer tent and at the popular We’ll Meet Again Tea Room.
The timetable for live music and entertainment will be announced shortly.
