Three Counties Showground to host monster tractor show
12:55pm Monday 10th February 2014 in News
IT LOOKS set to be an incredible year for enthusiasts of tractors, vintage vehicles and classic cars.
A host of events are being planned and organised by Mark Woodward Classic Events, and the Tractor World Show at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern is the first major show of the year.
Taking place on March 1 and March 2, this indoor show is one of the biggest of its kind.
And this year, more of it than ever before will be under cover in case the weather is unkind.
A massive marquee will increase covered space by a third, adding to the two halls that Tractor World already occupies.
Featuring more than 400 tractor and implement displays from most of the major manufacturers, including club displays, stationary engines, horticultural, farm model displays and classic Land Rovers, the show welcomes specialist tractor enthusiasts and family visitors alike.
Themed to celebrate golden anniversaries for Massey Ferguson, Ford and New Holland, this year’s show is a celebration of tractors in all their splendid glory.
Mark Woodward, event organiser, said: “I love this event, and always look forward to it, but this year’s show looks set to be extra special.
“On Saturday, the auction run by HJ Pugh has more than 2,000 lots expected.
“And on Sunday we’ve got the vintage sort out and auto jumble, as well as the vintage tractor road run into the Malvern Hills.
“The new marquee will ensure visitors can browse the stands and enjoy their tractors in comfort.”
Alongside the trade stands of specialist tractor parts and spares, visitors can browse through tools, clothes, toys, books and models.
Ticket prices are £10 per day for adults or £12 on the gate. Under-15s go free, while two adults can buy a weekend camping pass for just £50, or £60 on the day.
The event takes place on Saturday, March 1, from 9am to 5pm, and March 2, from 9.30am to 4pm.
