Steam Section Exhibitors

We are relaunching our steam section for 2017, with a new Marshal and a new demonstration area. Invitations will be sent out by post on 28th February. So, please look out for your invite. If you are interested in exhibiting, and have not received an invitation, please drop an e mail to

From the Rally Chairman...

On behalf of the WSRA Rally committee, I would like to invite you to join our Rally, to be held on the 5th and 6th August 2017. We welcome both regular and new exhibitors to our established and successful two day event.

As in previous years, as an exhibitor you are welcome to camp or bring a caravan for up to four nights at no charge. Each exhibitor has free entry to the Rally field for up to two adults and 3 children under 16, and two-day exhibitors will receive a free Rally Mug. Free entertainment in the Beer tent this year will be on both Friday and Saturday night.

As usual, for exhibitors, we will be running the steam hauled 'Severn Coast Express' train on the Friday night from the show site to Minehead and return, for a nominal £6 per person (a fraction of the normal return fare).

Exhibitor space remains at a premium in each section so early application is advised. Your application should be sent, together with a 9 inch by 6 inch stamped addressed envelope, not later than 31st May 2017. If any section is over subscribed unsuccessful applicants will be informed as soon as possible. Exhibitor numbers and information will be sent out in early July.

We look forward to seeing you in August.

Geoff Garfield, Rally Chairman



We welcome applications from traders for the 2017 Rally. We have sites available in our trade area, for open air pitches 30' deep, with prices according to frontage. We also have tables available in our covered Craft Marquee.

All of our catering pitches are now let, so we are unable to offer any more space for catering in 2017. This includes tea/coffee and ice cream.

Our regular traders have already been sent application forms, and space is filling up rapidly.

So, if you are interested in joining us, please contact us by e mail at for details and prices.
