HUNDREDS of vintage tractors will be on display at the Newark Showground this November as the increasingly popular Newark Vintage Tractor and Heritage Show makes a return for its 14th year.
The Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage Show is known to be one of the most prevalent vintage tractor shows in the country and is becoming a key date in the agricultural calendar. Tractor enthusiasts come from far and wide to show their tractors and to marvel at rare vintage machines.
The show began in 2003 and continues to grow with a huge number of exhibitors and traders returning each year. This year the show will be held on 12 and 13 November 2016.
From the well-known tractor brands to the more obscure and specialist models, there will be themed exhibitions on display throughout the two day event. Visitors to the show can look forward to more than 800 classic and vintage machines and 160 stalls selling everything from tools and antiques to tractor parts and vintage gifts.
Perfect for a family day out, the show embraces all things agricultural and will have a specialist exhibition of rare breeds of livestock which are native to the UK. Last year the show welcomed the likes of Caspian Ponies, Kerry Hill sheep, Lincoln Red cattle and this year there will be a great selection again.
A special Remembrance Sunday Service, led by Rev'd Doctor Alison Milbank from Southwell Minster, will be held in the Showground’s George Stephenson Exhibition Hall. Around 300 people annually commemorate the occasion at the show.
The ever-popular Sunday Sort Out, held this year on 13 November, is ideal for buyers hoping to find that mystery item with true significance.
Other regular attractions such as the Brown & Co Saturday Auction on the 12 November will create an interesting spectacle of vehicles, spare parts and implements as well as full size tractors and stationary engines.
The Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage Show is open to visitors from 9am – 5pm on Saturday 12 November and from 9am – 3.30pm on Sunday 13 November 2016.
