Vintage & Steam Show and Vintage Concert

Saturday 19 to Sunday 20 August 2017

Step back in time with the nostalgic sights and sounds of the era when steam powered the country. Visitors can enjoy all the bustle of a traditional steam festival on the weekend of 19 and 20 August, with full-size and model steam engines on display.

Enjoy a wide range of exhibits including:  commercial vehicles, military vehicles, miniature steam engines, a narrow gauge railway, model boats, Sussex Gauge One Group display, and classic cars. On Sunday 20 August the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club, Portsmouth Region, will hold its annual club event at the show.

A popular attraction at the event is the gallopers, which is at the centre of a traditional fairground (small charges apply). Visitors  can also take a ride on the narrow gauge steam railway and enjoy a programme of displays in the arena. With a vintage themed tea tent, local crafts and traditional demonstrations, plus arena displays throughout the weekend, this is an event for all the family to enjoy.
