Fire Engine and Vintage Vehicle Show


Due to poor weather conditions leading to waterlogged ground, this weekend’s Fire Engine and Vintage Vehicle Show at Preston Park (29 and 30 June) has been cancelled. Even though better weather is forecast, the site will not dry out in time. We are very sorry for any disappointment.

The popular Fire Engine and Vintage Vehicle Show returns to Preston Park on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 June, with thrills and spills for all the family.

There will be more than 300 classic, vintage and historic vehicles on display at the event, including the largest number of restored Fire Appliances in one place in the North of England.

In the main arena, this year's highlights include motorcycle display team Bolddog Lings and quad bike stuntman Paul Hannam.

The spectacular Bolddog Lings Freestyle Team will amaze the crowds with their gravity defiant Freestyle Motocross Show. Paul Hannam is a quad bike stuntman from North Devon with 25 years’ experience riding quad bikes & 10 years’ experience racing at British Championship level - his impressive show will give the crowds the chance to enjoy his record breaking, daredevil antics.

The full programme for Saturday and Sunday is as follows:

  • 11am - Event opens
  • 11:30am - Fire Cadets        
  • 12pm - Grand Parade         
  • 12:45pm - Paul Hannam Stunt Show

There’s also a market area packed with craft and food stalls, as well as fairground rides and bouncy castles.
