The Newark Vintage Tractor and Heritage Show - 13 – 14 November
By: Web Editor
The eighth Newark Vintage Tractor and Heritage Show is gearing up with a number of new innovations for the event which takes place on Saturday and Sunday 13 – 14 November.
Centre-piece of the show this year will be David Brown and Case tractors – both having a long standing reputation for reliability and durability in the farming sector. Last year’s 180 metre-long marquee of International tractors was a blow-out – and the show’s organisers are planning to top that incredible exhibition.
Following an exhibitor questionnaire handed out at the 2009 show, the organisers are making a number of changes, not least to the Presentation Evening. They are making Saturday evening a more relaxed and fully inclusive event by introducing an optional carvery instead of the more formal dinner to follow the presentation of trophies in the Cedric Ford Pavilion. There will also be an open bar and free entertainment for everyone in the pavilion during the evening (carvery tickets available in advance at a discounted price of £9 each).
Traditionally coinciding with Remembrance Sunday (14 November) the show will hold its popular service in the George Stephenson Hall to remember the fallen and wounded of past and current conflicts. This will be followed by the presentation of the vast array of silverware and the presentation of the coveted 4 Shows Ploughing Trophy not to forget the long awaited draw for the Fordson Tractor where all proceeds will go to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution.
Maintaining links with the armed forces, the show’s organisers are planning to expand on the success of its display of military vehicles while the heritage aspect will be embraced by Land Rovers, commercial vehicles and the Native & Rare Breeds Exhibition, now in its third year.
All this plus the Auction of tractors and parts (Saturday), Old Sodbury’s Sort-Out (Sunday), F R Gray and Sons’ Border Fine Arts, an art exhibition, trade stands, hot and cold food (ranging from breakfast to evening carvery) each day and on-site camping facilities the Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage Show really is ‘THE End-of-Season Show’ to attend.
