Vintage Tractor & Heritage Show returns to Newark next month

The 17th Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage Show returns to Newark Showground next month bringing together enthusiasts and hobbyists to see hundreds of vintage tractors, commercial vehicles, military and stationary engines from across the UK and Europe.

This year’s line-up includes more than 950 vintage tractor entries in the indoor and outdoor exhibition space, with an exciting range of trade stands selling vintage parts and equipment.

Visitors will see vehicle displays from popular groups such as Friends of Ferguson, Ford and Fordson Association, Blue Force, International Club, Nuffield and Land Rover.

In the feature marquee, the show will celebrate vintage models of iconic names David Brown (pre-1976), International Harvester and Case.

There is plenty of entertainment in store, with a live auction of vintage equipment from Brown & Co on Saturday 9 November. On 10 November, visitors are invited to the ‘Sunday Sortout’ autojumble sale, and to join one of the county’s largest congregations for the annual Service of Remembrance held amidst the vintage tractors in the George Stephenson Exhibition Hall. This years’ service will commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

There will be tractor and trailer rides and a display of remote-controlled trucks, tractors and diggers from Lincolnshire RC Truckers Club running throughout the event.

For the non-tractor enthusiasts, the show offers delicious food, refreshments and ice cream, traditional craft displays, and lots of opportunities to shop for country wear clothing and footwear.

In the Kids Craft area, children can join reenactors from the Women’s Land Army to learn about life during WWII including a display of vintage equipment and interactive sessions making poppies, churning butter and exploring what it was like to live on rations.

On Sunday 10 November there will be a Calf Show for all visitors to enjoy.

“We’re delighted to be welcoming so many fantastic exhibitors this year, which is shaping up to be our biggest show ever. The exhibition, displays and demonstrations are unmissable for anyone with an interest in vintage vehicles and our rich UK countryside heritage,” said Show Manager, Elizabeth Halsall.

“Last year we saw around 10,000 visitors over two days and we’re confident that this year will be even more popular. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the show.”

The show takes place on 9-3 November. To save time and money, visitors can buy their tickets in advance by 1 November 2019.
