About the show

Northleach has been associated with steam rallies since as far back as the 1950s. In later years it became known as Northleach Steam and Stationary Engine Show which, following the death of the original founder, Peter Nicholls, was run by his daughter Rita Nichols for a couple of years, then in its last remaining years up to 2000, was organised by Ken Darbun.

In 2012 plans were put into action by Steve Freemantle and a small team of volunteers to bring the show back to Northleach, and in September 2013 the first Northleach Steam and Vintage Show was held in the fields adjacent to where the show originally started in the 1950s. The 2013 revival show was a great success and even though it was only our first year we were still able to make donations to local organisatiions, whilst ensuring the show can be held again in 2014 and hopefully raise even more monies for the local community.

We see this as a great opportunity to share the past with the children of today, which is why we have decided not to charge for children to enter the showground and have tried to keep entrance fees affordable for all with the proceeds from the show going towards next year's event and local charities and organisations.

Of course none of this would have been possible without all the help and support from the local community, especially Rich Wills and The Farmington Trust for providing the land to use for the show, Slatters Farm for all the help they provided in getting the show up and running (including the original field we had planned to use but rapidly outgrew due to the enthusiasm of the exhibitors who wished to attend), Northleach and Fosse Lions Club for manning the public entrance and all the volunteers who turned out to steward. Then there was the support of the local shops and individuals who helped with sponsorhip, and we hope we will have such support again this year.
