What to expect...


The 2020 Rally will be held on 1 and 2 August 2020 at Norton Fitzwarren - 10am to 5pm - which will echo to the sight, sound and smell of many mighty steam engines as they gather for what will be our 33rd Rally. A glittering array of superb machinery will be in action with some of the country's finest examples of vintage transport on display.

The 2020 Rally will take place on 1 and 2 August 2020.
Many exhibitors were asked their opinions about a possible change of date, and we thank you for your help. The organising committee carefully considered all the responses received. The overwhelming majority were in favour of keeping to the first weekend in August, so this is what we intend to do for the future. We have also carefully recorded all the feedback we received from the 2019 Rally, and will use it in planning an even better Rally in 2020 See you there.
