A VARIETY of steam engines and 100 vintage and classic cars will be sauntering along to Stoke Prior.
The Stoke Prior Steam Rally will be held at Little Intall Fields, Stoke Pound Lane from today (Friday) until Sunday (September 16) and, among those producing the steam will be a 145-year-old small portable engine, showman’s engines, agricultural engines, steam rollers and miniature steam engines and vehicles.
Highlights of the classic vehicles will include landies, motorbikes and cycles, tractors and military vehicles.
The event will also feature Kondin the Human Toolbox, a fire eater and wood-carver who produces both large and small creations by using a chainsaw and there will be various other model displays and collections, along with fairground and dance hall organs.
In the arena, there will be dog displays from the Celestine Dog Agility Team, birds of prey demonstrations from the Berkley Owls and ferrets in the Black Country Man’s Ferret World Roadshow.
A fun dog show is being held from 2pm each day by the Birch Hill Dog Rescue, with entry at £1 per dog per class, and there will be market stalls, a fair, beer tent, refreshments and more.
After the success of the Living History event in May, the organisers have decided to incorporate that into the Stoke Prior Steam Rally. Re-enactors, the Lincoln County Regulators’ Wild West Group will put up a town with a main street where there will be gunfights to illustrate what life was like in the Wild West.
There will also be The North American Indian Village where there will be a large display of authentic Indian artefacts from the United States, along with Indian craftwork and Indian dance displays from a variety of eras - from the very old to the modern.
The show opens at 10am each day and there will be a vintage auction on Friday from 12midday.
Admission to the Stoke Prior Steam Rally is £7 for adults, £6 for seniors and £3 for children (aged five to 15) on Saturday and Sunday and half-price on Friday.
Family tickets - admitting two adults and two children - are £14.
