Classic and Vintage Vehicle Rally*

27 May 2018

An outstanding display of vehicles from the last century

The Vintage and Classic Vehicle Rally has evolved from the Steam Festival Days held at Pecorama in the mid 1990s.  It is now a standalone event which has grown in popularity over the years, with vehicles travelling from as far afield as Gloucestershire, Glamorgan, Hampshire and Cornwall to take part.

It’s always a jolly and colourful affair, with deck chairs, sun brollies and picnic baskets scattered among the cherished vehicles.  Much chatter and camera clicking takes place, as both visitors and participants alike inspect and admire the host of vehicles displayed in the Pecorama car parks.

Show Time at the Top Spot Marquee from 2.30pm. Entertainer TBC

Due to a change in car parking arrangements for 2018 and a potential need to limit numbers, we suggest exhibitors register as soon as possible.
