Welcome to Fens Vintage Image Montage

Our policy is to feature events we visit as exhibitors and occasionally as visitors, and report independently in words and pictures. We do not organise events ourselves, and do not endorse, feature or advertise shows that we do not attend. Our 2015 calendar is very similar to 2014 but with a couple of changes. Parson Drove Car & Bike Show will replace Whaplode Drove, and Ramsey Steam Rally in place of Hilgay Country Show. Other events will also include the East of England Vintage & Heritage Spectacular in April and Rackheath Vintage Fayre in May.

Holbeach Town & Country Fayre There were a few changes to the layout of the 2015 Holbeach Town & Country Fayre which helped consolidate last year's successful event on the new field. Access to the main ring was via a dedicated lane accessed from the perimeter roadway which ran around the whole site, and the large marquee was placed on the opposite side of the field to the public entrance which I think drew people into the field more. We took a bygones display this year and were fortunate enough to be on the main walkway across the field so caught plenty of people, and came away with some additions to the display as well. The vehicle displays were more or less as last year with rows of commercials, classic campers...  More/Images > > >

Euston Rural PasTimes The front cover of The 2015 Euston Rural PasTimes event proudly proclaimed "Celebrating 25 years" which was a bit of a surprise as I had this down as only the 24th year but this may be because it was 1992 when I first exhibited with Bygones at Euston Park, when it became more than just the Flower Festival in the church, and that was the inaugural event a year earlier. That 1992 event was not small but it has certainly expanded somewhat since then and 2015 seemed to have more horses and cars in particular than previous years. This year, I had more time to look around and actually managed to take the farm "tour" which although not particularly visually rewarding did give an insight into how the agricultural side of the estate worked and an...  More/Images > > >

Woolpit Steam Show After a very successful 2014 Woolpit Steam rally where the committee were able to donate 17,500 to various charitable causes as a result of last years' show, the 2015 show enjoyed a very good Saturday but a lot less public than normal on Sunday due to a wet start and a showery day. For the first time in several years the top car-park was never under pressure on Sunday so takings are bound to be down this year. That said, a lot of people had come in on Saturday which was quite a busy day, so overall another successful event. A special theme was re-introduced this year with a display of no less than 9 Barford & Perkins rollers ranging in age from 1905 to 1934. The company was formed by William Barford & Thomas Perkins in 1872 and started producing...  More/Images > > >
