To celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, this year’s festival will feature a display of 70-year-old Jubilee and Coronation vintage tractors, as well as a display of 100 pre-1922 vintage tractors and 100 century-old stationary engines.

The show will also feature exhibits from specialist marque clubs and interest groups, including the Marshall Club, Ford and Fordson and Ferguson, as well as working vintage machinery. The vintage vehicles section will celebrate 100 years of the Auston 7, the ‘big car in miniature’ which dominated the UK car market when it was first produced in 1922.
