BWork has already commenced on site for this years show. Members have started to freshen up our ex Fairground trailers and prepare the site for the end of the month. Our Main site advertising board was erected on 4th July and street banners have gone up in all three Torbay towns.
We have a magnicifent line up of Steam engines with an expected 28 Full size, seven of which are naking their debuts. and around 20 scale engines. Among the Full size We will be welcoming the return of our Mascot engine "Pride of Devon" after having a lengthy overhaul. It will be great to see her back with Gordon and Jo.
The Main theme of this years event is Farming through the ages. Our aim is to have a section of the showground set aside with working and static displays of farm machinery from the 1800s up to the present time. Included in this large exhibition will be 3 sawbenches, 2 Threshing drums all working, plus ploughing with horses, steam engines and tractors. There will also be numerous exhibits details of these will be on line as time goes on.
We have this year for the first time the oldest horse drawn bus from the Lizard stallions, which will be giving rides around the Showground.
We are also happy to once again have a Galloper and Big Wheel at the show enhancing our Vintage fair.
For all Organ enthusiasts we welcome back the Kelders Family with "Victory" and "Locomotion" the worlds largest travelling concert organ. We have had such a fantastic feedback from visitors in previous years that we had to ask them back.
