Tractor enthusiasts from across the country will gather for the Newby Hall Tractor Fest this week – and its annual ‘March of the Tractors’.
The two-day event at the tourist attraction near Ripon entertains thousands of visitors each year, not just tractor owners, collectors and enthusiasts but families across the UK who are promised a great day out.
Last year organisers staged a March of the Tractors from Newby Hall to Ripon market square and it proved such a success that one is planned again this year, from 5pm on Saturday, June 7. A line of tractors and engines will follow a route into Ripon centre where shops, cafes and restaurants will again stay open to mark the occasion. The tractors will be sent back to the hall by the Ripon Hornblower at 7pm.
Despite its name, Tractor Fest is not just about tractors but also features a wide-range of vintage engines and cars from around the UK and Europe. Highlights this year will include some iconic tractors and machinery including an exhibition of vintage Model T’s. Tickets are adults £9.50, concessions £8.50, children £7.50.
