The weekend of the 10th and 11th of August marks the return of Northchapel Working Steam Show so it's full steam ahead at School House Farm, London Road, Northchapel.
The show will feature working steam exhibits throughout, including ploughing, threshing, heavy haulage and wood sawing. This year’s show is not limited to steam exhibits though, and includes a wide selection of classic and commercial vehicles, military vehicles, tractors, heavy horses and vintage motorcycles. A steam showman’s engine will be generating power for a small fairground, with model marquee and archery demonstrations providing entertainment throughout the weekend.
An emphasis on working demonstrations presents a flavour of how life functioned before modern day vehicles, as well displaying local fare and crafts. The show is sponsored by Blaker Specialist Welding Repairs and set to raise funds for local charities. With money donated to both St. Wilfrid’s Hospice and Macmillan from last year’s show, the challenge is to beat previous fundraising success.
Tickets can be purchased through the show’s website in advance, at a discounted, early bird rate. Visit the Northchapel Steam Show website for further information.
