...1st and 2nd March 2014
2014 looks set to be a good year for enthusiasts of tractors, vintage vehicles and classic cars. A whole host of events are being planned and organised by Mark Woodward Classic Events and the Tractor World Show at the Three Counties Showground at Malvern is the first major show of the year.
Taking place on the 1st and 2nd March 2014, this indoor tractor show is one of the biggest shows of its kind. This year more of it than ever before will be under cover in case the weather is unkind. A massive marquee will increase covered space by a third, adding to the two halls that Tractor World already occupies. Featuring over 400 tractor & Implement displays from most of the major manufacturers including club displays, stationary engines, horticultural, farm model displays and classic Land Rovers, the show welcomes specialist tractor enthusiasts and family visitors alike.
Themed to celebrate golden anniversaries for Massey Ferguson, Ford and New Holland, this years’ show really is a celebration of tractors in all their splendid glory. It is 50 years since the blues opened their factory at Basildon and Massey Ferguson launched their ground breaking 100 series, so visitors can expect a stunning show full of new, classic, vintage and veteran tractors and machinery.
Mark Woodward organiser of this and over 20 other events all around the country said “I love this event and always look forward to it, but this year’s show looks set to be extra special. On Saturday the auction run by HJ Pugh has over 2,000 lots expected and on Sunday we’ve the vintage sort out and auto jumble, as well as the vintage tractor road run into the Malvern Hills. The new marquee will ensure that visitors can browse the trade and club stands and enjoy their tractors in comfort.”
Amongst the trade stands of specialist tractor parts and spares, visitors can browse through tools, clothes, toys, books and models, Plus during the 2 day event they’ll be competitions, prizes, talks, the chance to build a grey Ferguson with students from Lackham college, and the 2014 “Tractor Championship and Awards” will be announced.
Sponsored by Kelsey Media, publishers of Tractor & Machinery magazine, the 2013 show saw record crowds coming through the doors and this year looks set to be even bigger and better than before.
