10am-5pm Saturday, 10am-4pm Sunday
Adults £5, Senior Citizens £3, Children under 16 FREE, Parking FREE
Whilst this may not be one of the biggest shows in the country, the show’s heritage and relaxed enjoyable atmosphere set in the idyllic Cotswold countryside gives it a uniqueness of its own.
Steam engines sit looking out over the fields and stone walls, or trundle round the arena tooting their whistles; live music gently drifts around the ground as the ale flows; tractors, bikes, military and commercial vehicles, and classic cars be admired in their gleaming glory; with the sounds of the stationary engines powering up lights, pumping water or sifting grain clinking away in the background; and of course all the smells and sounds of the steam era can once again be experienced by old and young alike.
This year’s show looks to be even bigger than last years, with more engines and vehicles on display, lots more stalls and a greater variety of food offerings from burgers and Cornish pasties to hog roast, al fresco Italian to Mexican, donuts, ice-cream and cakes as well as traditional confectionery to bring back memories of bygone days.
