Midlands Air Ambulane

We’re delighted to be supporting the midlands air ambulance once again this year. A very worth while cause which is very local to our event.

In a few weeks we have the cheque presentation from the 2017 event. More details soon.

The work starts now…

We might have finished the 2017 event, but it all starts again for the 2018 show.

Organising the rally takes a full year. Some of the displays and activities have to be booked a year in advance. We’ve already confirmed a few booking for 2018 so we really are already on our way to the 2018 Barton Under Needwood Steam Rally and Family Feastival.

We’d love to get your feedback on the 2017 show. We hope you enjoyed it, but we understand there are always things which can be improved. Good or bad, please do let us know. If we don’t know we can’t improve the bad things and we might not do the good things again.

We’ll be posting updates between now and the 2018 rally so do look in on us occationally.

Thanks go out to all our unpaid overworked volunteers who make it all possible. Also the traders, crafts, exhibitors and displays who help us put on such a great event for a really worthy cause.

Free Magic Shows

We like to give you lots of things for free when you’ve paid to come into the show.This year we have an onsite magician and entertainer who’ll be hosting a magic show 3 times a day, both days, for free.
