Northleach Steam Show returning after 13 years
NORTHLEACH Steam and Vintage Show is returning after 13 years thanks to one determined resident keen to bring the popular event back to the town.
The first Northleach steam fair was held in 1974 but came to an unplanned end in 2000. Now, tractor-enthusiast Steve Freemantle has brought the show back for 2013 with plans to turn it into an annual event once more.
Full size steam engines, classic cars and motorcycles, military vehicles and various tractors will be on display over the weekend of September 7-8.
A selection of vintage-themed stalls will also be featured as well as a fun fair, a vintage hog roast, a bar with live music and Keith Harding with his World of Mechanical Music.
Steve Freemantle said he was extremely motivated to bring the show back.
"People said I'd never be able to do it," he added. "They said people have tried before but never succeed. That just made me all the more determined though."
The steam rally will be held down Eastington Road on September 7-8 from 10am to 5pm with signposts stationed to direct visitors to the car park.Tickets cost £5 per adult, £3 per senior citizen with children under 16 going free.
All proceeds will be split between Kate's Carer's, a residential home in Northleach and local schools.
