The 45th Annual Gloucestershire Vintage & Country Extravaganza 2019 – Steamed to Success!
The 45th annual Gloucestershire Vintage & Country Extravaganza took place at South Cerney Airfield, Cirencester on Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th August 2019 and was hailed a huge success. The show attracted up to 20,000 visitors over the three days.
The show, organised by The Stroud Vintage Transport and Engine Club (SVTEC), is the biggest event of its kind run by volunteers and could not take place without the huge support of the dedicated section leaders, exhibitors, volunteers and visitors. Since moving to South Cerney Airfield in 2011 the show has doubled in regards to both exhibitor and visitor numbers. This year also saw another increase in exhibitors on site and advance tickets sales.
Martyn Slater, Chairman of SVTEC, said: “I am immensely proud and grateful to our team of volunteers for all their hard work both during the weekend and on the build-up to the show. To lay on an event of this magnitude, with the quantity and quality of exhibits is by no mean feat and takes a lot of commitment and dedication to all involved”.
He continued “As well as raising money for local and national charities, the aim of the event has always been to celebrate our unique transport heritage, in hope that we can inspire the younger generation to get involved in the preservation of historic vehicles. We are incredibly grateful to all the exhibitors for their continued support. We are receiving fabulous feedback, many hailing it as the best yet.”
