South Hams Vintage Machine Rally
The 43rd annual two day working vintage rally will be held on Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th August 2017 at Sorley Cross, Kingsbridge TQ7 4AF.
Our rally strives to showcase our heritage with exhibits from days gone by including tractors and implements, commercial vehicles, motorbikes, cars, steam engines and horse drawn ploughs.
In the main ring throughout the day there are different demonstrations from ploughing the ground, to how you would harvest the crops in the old fashioned way. The main ring events will give you the opportunity to see in-depth working demonstrations from yesteryear. Also there are parades, at different times of the day on both Saturday and Sunday, of the vehicles, tractors and the horses pulling their ploughs.
In the outer fields there are working demonstrations with steam engines, combines and the vintage tractors working, including cutting corn in the old fashioned way with a tractor and binder. Within the main rally field you can see the static displays of vintage tractors, cars, bikes, commercial vehicles, steam engines driving saw benches.
The rally is not all about vintage machinery, it also has a lot to offer for everyone including, traditional craft marquee, fully licensed bar, children's entertainer, birds of prey, tractor and trailer rides, a bouncy castle, vintage fairground attractions and trade stalls.
