Vintage and Country Extravaganza – 3 to 5 August
A Vintage and Country Extravaganza will be held on Friday 3 to Sunday 5 August at South Cerney Airfield.
Proceeds from the event will go to a number of good causes including Cobalt.
The Nailsworth and North Woodchester Support Group help at this event by running the gate, selling programmes and manning a large stall near the entrance. Volunteers to help this happen are needed.
It is the largest show of its kind run entirely by volunteers. Each year the show features the popular Steam Arena, with non-stop steam demonstrations and literally thousands of vintage vehicles from classic cars, tractors, commercial vehicles, vintage bus and coaches, motorcycles, scooters, traction engines, miniature steam, industrial trucks, military vehicles, caravans to emergency vehicles. Plus a Countryside Arena featuring dog shows, ferret racing, rare breeds, animal conservation, alpacas, shire horses, horse logging, falconry displays to children’s pony rides.
The shows goal has always been to give the best value for money family day out in Gloucestershire, with something for all of the family to enjoy. The show has evolved a lot over the past 40 years, but the mission remains the same – to inform, educate, entertain and celebrate our unique transport history and the preservation of historical vehicles.
Hosted by the Stroud Vintage Transport and Engine Club the event is now in its 44th year and promises to be one of the biggest and best countryside events in the UK. The show will feature an impressive display of classic cars and a model aircraft flying display, hundreds of trade stands and plenty of other highlights with fun for all ages.
