THE 52nd Woodcote Rally will take place on the weekend of July 11 and 12.

Thousands of people are expected to attend the event in a field off the A4074 north of the village.

There will be hundreds of vintage and veteran vehicles on show, including cars, tractors, motorcycles, steam traction engines and commercial and military vehicles.

A blacksmith will give demonstrations in the craft and country arena and there will be falconry and shire horse displays.

There will be music from brass, silver and steel bands, pop and rock groups and a drum circle. Other attractions will include trade stands, a craft marquee and a beer tent run by CAMRA.



Organiser Andy Crockett said: “We have almost finished our preparations so it’s just a case of setting up a few days beforehand.

“Now we’re just hoping for the right weather â?? not too hot, not too cold and not too wet.”

The rally has been running since 1964 and has raised more than £425,000 for good causes in the community. Last year, it made £25,000.
