Fire engine and vintage vehicle show set to thrill

fire engine and vehicle show

Stockton Borough’s popular Fire Engine and Vintage Vehicle Show will return to Preston Park Museum and Grounds on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May.

The show includes an exciting range of activities and fun for all the family, including more than 400 classic and restored vehicles from the 1930s to the present day.             

From 11am to 5pm on both days visitors can step back in time and enjoy the largest display of fire appliances in the North of England from the earliest times to the most modern of appliances. 

The exhibits also include commercial vehicles, passenger vehicles, agricultural and military exhibits, pedal and motorcycles.

There is a jammed-packed programme of displays and activities in the main arena including the awe-inspiring ‘Big Pete’ and ‘The Grim Reaper’ monster trucks. The Kangaroo Kid quad bike stunt team will also be performing their amazing range of breathtaking stunts.

Additional attractions include craft and food stalls, fairground attractions, trade stands and auto-jumble stalls.

Councillor Norma Wilburn, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, said: “The Fire Engine and Vintage Vehicle Show is a fantastic event with lots to do and see for people of all ages.  Come along to join in the fun, marvel at the rip-roaring stunt displays and browse the stalls and sideshows.”

Entry to the show is £5 for adults and £2.50 for children and concessions, under-fives are free.  A family ticket costs £12 (two adults, two children or one adult, three children).
