Over 300 vehicles of all types will be on display this weekend (June 23 and 24), including the largest number of restored fire appliances in one place in the North of England.

Military vehicles, tractors, steam exhibits, classic American vehicles and motorcycles dating back to before the Second World War will be on show. 

There will also be a market area and central arena with live motoring displays and performances.

Highlights include Big Pete and the Grim Reaper Monster truck show and the Xtreme Stunt team motorcycle and bike show.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, Councillor Norma Wilburn, said: "The Fire Engine and Vintage Vehicle Show is always a big hit and attracts hundreds of families every year.  

"And, with so much beautiful green space sprawling the banks of the River Tees, Preston Park is the perfect place to host the rally.

"The spectacle is a great way to kick off our summer season of outdoor events in the Borough. I urge people to come along and get involved!"

The event will run from 11am until 5pm both days.

Entry is £5 adults, £2.50 under 16s and pensioners, while those aged five and under are free. Family entry is £12 (two adults and two children, or one adult and three children).
