Welcome to the animal and countryside section, which is a little bit like a country fair amongst the hustle and bustle of the steam show. We have live arena displays ever day including falconry, horse logging to dog displays. Last year we introduce a second arena to run a dog show but this year we are hoping to add further the displays in the second arena. There are many different types of stall ranging from cat protection, RSPCA to hurdle making. A new attraction for this year will be the introduction of pony rides for children. We would love to meet you all so come and enjoy the country theme.

This section of the show will try to show how our transportation manufacturers have changed over the years.

Britain was the prime manufacturer of commercial vehicles,(AEC, BEDFORD, COMMER, ERF, FODEN etc) now all closed except a few ie DENNIS who`s main trucks are refuse & recycling vehicles. 

All these have now been taken over by European manufacturers such as  MAN, MERCEDES, SCANIA & VOLVO.

Even these trucks have made their mark in history now showing as the modern classics on the show ground.

Please give yourself a couple of minutes to look around your home, as 99% of your possessions were probably delivered by a truck.

This year the commercial section will fall in to place as normal with the unexpected visitors that enter too late, for example such as an ERF which was en route from Scotland to Carters Fair and called in to display.

Our section caters for cars from the very dawn of the motoring era. This is represented by a few cars that take part in the London to Brighton Run which is for cars before 1904. Although we enjoy seeing exotic cars such as Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, etc, most of our cars are of the mass produced Morris, Austin, and Ford marques - those seen on our roads every day over the last hundred years!. Many of these cars were hidden away in barns and sheds, because there was not the demand for second hand cars, and most people could not afford to run a second car. My own car is a 1925 Bullnose Morris and cost £12.10s (£12.50) a year to tax, at a time when a skilled worker might earn £5.00 a week and a car was regarded as a luxury.

Please come along have a look at our section and chat with some of the owners, they love to talk about their cars and why they own them.

In our section this year, we are expecting a wide range of classic cars spanning the entire age range.

At last year's show we had in excess of 80 exhibits registered and anticipate more this year, including a wide range of mainly British makes and models and several European and Japanese models.

Come along and have a look at our section which includes some stunning examples of the classic cars of the period. There's something for everyone and the owners are knowledgable and proud to show off their their splendid vehicles.

We hope to see you at this year's show.

Last year we had 45 plus American cars over the weekend, this year we have some rare cars booked in. These include two 1929 Cadillac's, both in first class condition - they don't come any better, a 1959 Galaxie Skyliner with retractable hardtop this is a very rare and unusual car. Also for those who like something different a 1970 Chevrolet Camaro with a 455 ci big block engine fitted with a supercharger, twin 750cmf carburettors and nitrous oxide, all this adds up to a massive 1100 BHP.

The Bus and Coach section goes from strength to strength.  Here you will find examples of restored public service vehicles from the 1940's to the 1980's.  In previous years we have had examples that were in service as far away as Brazil and as near as our local coach company in Cirencester.

An added element of the section is the chance to have a ride on some of the exhibits as once again we are planning to operate a FREE circular service around the site.  In addition we will be operating vintage buses on our feeder services from Kemble Station and Cirencester - timetables will be published on the website in June.

We are extremely pleased to announce the return of the Bedford OB Get-together.  This will be the third time the event has hosted the annual meeting of these wonderful iconic 1950's coaches and we are hoping for a record attendance this year!.

There were a record number of motorcycle entries at the show last year, 202 booked in plus the new grass track bike section featuring the 1970s World Championship Moto x Series. Plans are in place for 2015 to continue with additional bike section displays, and we always try to bring something of interest to all ages and interests, from Veteran to Vintage and Classic. From the smallest Brockhouse Corgi ‘Para’ bike to the HRD Vincent Meteor series B, from the Yamaha FS1E (my first bike!) to the Suzuki GT750, there will be something to suit everyone’s motorcycling interests.

The Military section is one of the larger vehicle sections, usually attracting around a hundred entries. They encompass the entire range of military vehicles, from paratrooper bicycles to 40-ton tank transporters. Many owners take their vehicle into the show ring, usually scheduled for mid-afternoon, which always makes a good display. Regular exhibits include the Scammell range of tank transporters and recovery vehicles, A.E.C. Matador and Militant gun tractors, and the Leyland "DROPS", (Demountable Rack Offload and Pickup System!) some of which are still in service.
So let's hope for a fine weekend, and see you all in August!
