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.

Little Downham Bygone & Organ Extravaganza The 23rd annual Little Downham Bygones & organ Extravaganza featured over 140 tractors, however, most of them were in miniature with a complete set of Universal Hobbies tractor models on show inside the hall. Outside around a dozen full-size tractors joined approximately the same number of cars, a handful of fairground organs and a trio of stationary engines in the yard behind the Village Centre hall. Outside, a pair of local lorries joined the Ruston engine "Success" to help draw in the public. As well as the two tables of miniature tractors, other models included a collection of model Issetta bubble-cars and 3-wheelers...  More/Images > > >

Newark Tractor Show For me personally, Newark improved a little in 2014.

However, we were only given paperwork for one of our entries so had to traipse back to the Control hut later to sort that out, but overall a much better experience than the last couple of years, well done. I even had time to visit the nearby Newark Air Museum for the first time, which has a stunning array of aircraft to look at, much more than I had ever realised were on site, well worth taking time out for. Thanks Rick for the tip-off. There were some changes this year with one of the main themes being...  More/Images > > >

Pensthorpe Vintage Rally The 3rd Pensthorpe Vintage Fair has unfortunately turned out to be the last, as despite entry forms for 2015 being handed out at the close of the 2014 show, Pensthorpe Natural Park have since removed the event from their programme for 2015 and it's unlikely to be reinstated in future years. Graham & Sharon have asked us via the website to thank all helpers, exhibitors and visitors for their support over the last three years at Pensthorpe. It's a great shame as the show was well supported by exhibitors and seemed to be reasonably well populated with public for the time of year. Many of the things we normally comment on will not now be relevant for the future. However, one highlight of the 2014 show was the MG Magnette Owner's...  More/Images > > >
