If you are looking for a fascinating and nostalgic family day out for the whole family, look no further than the Weeting Steam Engine Rally and Country Show. Now in its 51st year this year’s show takes place from Friday 19th – Sunday 21st July at Fengate Farm on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.
There are parades of steam traction engines, steam lorries, vintage tractors, heavy horse and fire engines, plus working steam-powered farmyard machines, a full-sized steam train, a model steam train (which takes passengers round a track) and small steam models. There are static displays of vintage cars, classic cars, motorbikes, stationary Engines, military vehicles and many fascinating exhibits.
There are demonstrations of steam ploughing, steam threshing of corn, steam powered sawmill, stone crushing, mini and full sized tractor pulling and farmyard implements of a bygone era. Ploughing and cultivating demonstrations using vintage tractors and horses will be taking place throughout the weekend.
The Snakewood Dog Agility Team will give regular demonstrations in their own separate arena. There will also be a craft marquee, food hall and over 60 trade stands as well as working with the local community to provide free entertainment for children over in the Hub with a fenced in safety zone by the main ring.
Helicopter flights have proved to be popular way to get a birds-eye view of the whole show. There are also old time fairground rides as well as new rides, bouncy castles, Archery, Tank rides and many other bits to keep the whole family entertained.
Each year also features a special arena event and heavy horse display. Why not stay late on Saturday and enjoy the evening with us with musical entertainment running till late? Please see This Year’s Show for all the details.
To enable visitors to see all the attractions on the 170 acre showground, transport is provided, free of charge, in the form of specially built trailers, towed by tractors.
Car parking is free and there is a 12 acre caravan and camping site for those who wish to stay for the whole weekend.
