COMPETITION Win tickets to a Steam Rally

It's nearly time for the annual Barton Steam Rally. Last year's event had to be cancelled due to the terrible weather so this year the organisers are hoping that the current dry spell will carry on for a bit longer - the rally is on July 20th and 21st in Barton Under Needwood, in Derbyshire.

Not only will there be steam engines, vintage farm machinery and - my favourite - fairground organs, there will also be a dog display team (complete with a doggy assault course for your own Best Friend to try), a magician, music, dancing, food and drink and crafts and much more.

I have TWO family tickets to give away - one for a blog entry and one for a Twitter entry. But you will need to be quick - the competition closes at midnight on Sunday so that the organisers  can post out the winning tickets on Monday. And that means if you enter, please PLEASE try to check your email or twitter account on Monday morning to see if you are a winner - the sooner you reply to me with your details, the sooner I'll be able to pass the tickets on to the organiser.

For convenience, I've put both entry routes into the same Rafflecopter widget, but I will separate them when I do the draw (Rafflecopter's clever like that!).

One final thing - because last year's rally was cancelled, the organisers have been trying to contact last year's winner from this blog to offer them replacement tickets. I no longer have the winner's contact details, so if it was YOU can you please get in touch with me?

  1. My husband & son love Steam Rallies so this would be a great start to the school holiday and not too far away from us.

  2. booked for three rallies last year all were cancelled due to weather still suffering from steam withdrawal symptons

  3. I have never been to a steam rally before - they look interesting so would love to go and have a look

  4. I pretend I don't like steam trains or rallies and I'm only going to keep my hubby company, but secretly I love the smell, the noise, the gleaming engines, the enthusiasm of the owners. Please don't tell him though!

  5. I have a 2 year old who loves any form of transport and would be in Seventh Heaven if we won this ;)

  6. I love how friendly and knowledgeable people are at Steam Engine rallies/shows.I grew up in a town that holds one every year for as long as I can remember (Can't remember if it was cancelled last year due to bad weather) My sons would love to attend.
