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 2016 calendar is similar to 2015 but with a couple of changes. The East of England Vintage & Heritage Spectacular in April replaces Cottenham, and Ramsey Steam Rally in place of Hilgay Country Show. Other events we'll also include are the Rackheath Vintage Fayre in May, and the Parson Drove Car & Bike Show in July.

Rushden Cavalcade As usual the 38th Annual Cavalcade of Historical Transport & Country Show organised by Rushden Historical Transport Society clashed with NVTEC East Anglia Group's 40th Anniversary Rally at Stradsett in west Norfolk. However, from what I've seen and heard both events had a good weekend, but Monday at Rushden was quite a quiet day was we were closer to the inevitable onslaught of rain that finally arrived late afternoon. Perhaps due to the 40th anniversary status at Stradsett, a few stationary engine exhibitors had changed allegiance and more left on Sunday night, otherwise it was pretty much business as usual. There were a few late layout changes at Rushden caused by the damp ground conditions the previous weekend which meant part of the vintage fairground couldn't site in their usual position. They had to move along to firmer ground opposite the main...  More/Images > > >

Norwich Eastern Counties Vintage Show The 5th Eastern Counties Vintage Show held on part of the Royal Norfolk Showground, Cottesey, Norwich, county town of Norfolk, was a showcase for all branches of the vintage movement. Originally branded the Norwich Vintage Tractor show, like Newark at the opposite end of the year, it has rebranded itself to reflect the broader range of machinery now on offer, not only tractors, but stationary engines, horticultural machinery, cars, motorbikes, commercials, military vehicles & steam. The commercial section commemorated the life of Jack Richards of Fakenham, formerly of Haddenham, with a display of six of his vehicles, ranging from the 1946 ERF through to the modern 2015 DAF XF with four other ERFs in-between. The ERF club, REVS, did his memory...  More/Images > > >

Little Downham Bygone & Organ Extravaganza The 24th Little Downham Bygone & Organ Extravaganza was held at the Village Centre hall on Saturday 19 March, and despite the weather not being as kind as in previous years (chilly & drizzly for part of the time), still managed to draw in a goodly number of visitors during the afternoon. The hall itself was a little different with a new bar-area taking up some of the space and a stage extension also taking up a little bit of room. The bygone exhibitors tried to ring the changes to keep the event fresh with several of the exhibitors bringing different displays. These included (last year's display in brackets) brass blowlamps (model tractors), equine memorabilia (Pocket watches), model British Road Services yard layout (oil company memorabilia), puncture repair kits...  More/Images > > >
