STOKE ROW Steam and Vintage Vehicle Rally will take place at Larkstoke Farm, Ipsden, this weekend.

This is the 33rd year of the rally, which is run by the Stoke Row Steam and Vintage Vehicle Club, a group of enthusiasts.

The club was formed in 2009 to save the rally from vanishing and since then it has gone from strength to strength.

This year?s rally promises to be the largest yet as all entry sections are full.

There will be more than 25 steam traction engines and more than 20 model steam engines as well as a large number of military vehicles, commercial vehicles, vintage and classic tractors, stationary engines and vintage, veteran and classic cars and motorcycles. There will be a craft country marquee, a tea tent, a large market and food outlets as well as children?s attractions including a Punch and Judy show, a petting farm and fairground.

A brass band, pipe band and clog and step dancers will perform and there will be a licensed bar and live evening entertainment tonight (Friday) and tomorrow evening.

Saturday evening will see some of the steam engines and other vehicles taking part in their traditional road run to the King William pub at Hailey.

The rally is open from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday. Entry is £6 for adults (£5 for concessions) and £2 for children under 16. Parking is free.
