Newark Tractor Show to celebrate tenth anniversary
The Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage Show, to be held on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th November, will be celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. The Show has grown year on year to become the nation’s leading event of its type. Incorporated within the Show is the Living History of the British Isles, now in its fifth year, featuring native and rare breeds of farm and equine animals as well as traditional crafts.
Plans are in place to make the most of the celebrations, ensuring that visitors and exhibitors enjoy a bigger and better event than ever! This year there will be a major theme display of Perkins Derivatives; Perkins engines are manufactured at nearby Peterborough and have long been recognised for durability and reliability in an industry that places great demands on its machinery.
Nominated and Open entries are now being accepted to what is regarded as THE show to end the season. Perkins Derivatives (other than Nominated entries) will be on display in the giant Feature Marquee which has proved very popular since its inception two years ago.
While new ideas are still being finalised, there will be many old favourites at the Show, including the Brown & Co Auction (from 10.00am on Saturday) and Remembrance Day Service (Sunday). Due to illness Jim Wilkie is unable to run his famous Old Sodbury Sort-Out so to avoid disappointment, organisers Newark & Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society will run its own version from 9.00am on the Sunday.
Regular attractions include quality trade stands and catering outlets – with early morning breakfast plus Saturday evening and Sunday lunchtime carvery in the Cedric Ford Pavilion – presentation of trophies (following the Sunday service) and a host of Land Rover, military and commercial vehicles.
