IT’s full steam ahead this Spring Bank Holiday weekend with the annual Chipping Steam Fair.

The event, which celebrates its 13th year this year, will be held over the Bank Holiday weekend, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, at the Green Lane Showground, Chipping. One of the highlights among the 40 steam engines on display will be the late Fred Dibnah’s Steam Roller “Betsy” and other vehicles from his collection.

The military section will include a rare opportunity to see a Chieftain tank and other tracked vehicles being put through their paces on the “battleground”. There will also be a vast array of classic vehicles; cars, commercials and motorcycles , and the tractor section will have more than 120 vehicles this year.

There will be plenty of entertainment for all the family including a ride-on train, Punch and Judy and fun fair with bouncy castles for the children.

Admission is £7 for adults, £5 for children/OAPs with children under 12 free.
