There’s something for all the family at Newark Vintage Tractor Show
Over a century of farm machinery is to be displayed at the UK’s biggest vintage tractor and heritage show.
17th NEWARK VINTAGE TRACTOR AND HERITAGE SHOW
On 9 & 10 November, Newark Showground will once again be holding the largest show of its kind in the UK. This family-friendly annual autumn event will feature hundreds of vintage agricultural and horticultural machines as well as plenty of trade stands, demonstrations and displays.
The feature tractor themes for 2019 are; International Harvester, CASE and David Brown (pre 1796). You’ll also see original condition vintage machines, the UK’s premier restorations, static and working stationary engines, commercial vehicles and horticultural equipment! This year’s event will see more tractors than ever before, with the event having expanded into the John Eastwood Buildings to accommodate the growing show.
The Show strives to include as many vintage vehicle varieties as possible and collectors proudly bring along lovingly restored fire engines, commercial vans and lorries, military jeeps and carriers. Collections of vintage machines will be on display inside and outdoors on Newark Showground and visitors are encouraged to bring their questions to the expert enthusiasts, located on the various tractor club stands.
For the non-tractor enthusiasts in your family, there is still plenty to see and do, with displays of traditional crafts such as spinning, stick-making and chair caning as well as numerous indoor and outdoor trade stands offering opportunities to shop for products from country wear clothing, gifts, footwear, original paintings and prints, to sweet and savoury snacks, as well as items that will appeal to agricultural machinery enthusiasts.
Children will be pleased to visit Father Christmas in his ‘igloo’ where he will attentively listen to ‘what they want for Christmas’.
Tasty hot meals, drinks, cold snacks and ice-cream will be available at various outlets and a sit-down meal will be available in the Cedric Ford, lovingly cooked and served by Newark Showground’s on-site catering team, Tastes.
Don’t miss the annual Remembrance Sunday Service, held amongst the vintage tractors displayed in the George Stephenson Exhibition Hall, which is supported by Southwell Minster and this year will be commemorating D-Day. The service is and is always well attended, and the poignant sound of the lone bugler John Baigent signalling the two minutes’ silence to remember those lost at war is particularly evocative.
