The Gloucestershire Steam & Vintage Extravaganza makes a welcome return to Cotswold Airport (previously known as Kemble Airfield) this year. From Friday 6th - Sunday 8th August 2010 the extravaganza, in its 36th year, will be raising money for The Cobalt Appeal Fund, Diabetes UK & The County Air Ambulance.
The show was originally conceived for steam enthusiasts, but the range of exhibits has grown year on year. It now boasts a huge array of vintage transport, from buses & coaches, commercial vehicles, classic cars and motorcycles through to military vehicles, tractors, aircraft, engines and historic caravans. A live action arena will be an integral part of the show with interactive demonstrations taking place every day, and the popular vintage fun-fair is sure to keep the children amused.
This year's Military section consists of over 100 vehicles of all sizes and ages and should prove fascinating to both young and old alike. From the humble Jeep and Land Rover to immense tracked armour, there is something about a military vehicle that draws you towards it. They are rich in history and all have varied stories attached which is why the Kemble Steam Extravaganza is delighted to welcome back some unusual vehicles. Visitors will have a chance to get up close to each vehicle and inspect
first hand the vehicles and equipment that have helped shape the world as we see it today. John Weedon, the Director of the military vehicles section said, 'There is a growing interest in military vehicles - new ones as well as old ones. For 2010 we have the largest number and widest range of military vehicles ever from the
pre-war to the present day.' More information and discounted tickets at www.steamextravaganza.com or click here for Gloucestershire Steam & Vintage Extravaganza
