Entrance Price See web site Per person

The rally started some years ago when a group of local farmers and ‘tractor boys’ got together over a weekend to show off their vintage farm vehicles and steam engines. Money raised that weekend was donated to a local charity and because a good time was had by all, arrangements were made for a repeat rally the following year. Since then the Bolnhurst Vintage & Country Fayre has gone from strength to strength. It has grown to include vintage cars/heavy goods vehicles and static displays together with various local craft stalls. Entertainment has been laid on every year in the main arena, including tractor games and sheepdog displays.

 

This community of enthusiasts has grown and there are now up to 4 generations of families who return to spend the weekend reminiscing about the good old days over the odd pint or three. Each year the Rally committee has tried to retain the original atmosphere and camaraderie that lead to the first get together all those years ago and despite a new younger generation of committee members we continue to ensure this tradition is maintained.

 

As with the first rally the money raised over each weekend continues to be donated to our local charities, latterly an average of between £2000 and £3000 each year.
