Win tickets to the Barton Under Needwood steam rally

Here's some information from the Rally organisers:

This year's ever popular event will, once again, be held at Barton Gate near Barton Under Needwood, just a few minutes drive from the A38 Barton turn on 19th and 20thJuly 2014 with free parking.

This year we are back bigger and better than ever with some brand new attractions and some of your favourites from past events. New on Saturday only you can experience Animal Encounters with meerkats, raccoons and more. Sunday only we have a fabulous live falconry display. Why not have a go at our new attractions, a rope agility course, suitable for all, the target shooting range, remote control cars or crazy golf. For the children we have the ever popular miniature steam engine rides and model railway rides. We are pleased to welcome back the Nuneaton Dog Training Club with their displays of dog agility over a specially designed course, bring your dog along for them to have a go. Also returning is the amazing demonstration of chain-saw sculpture. Marvel at our magician, tap your toes with A Touch of Life Dance Crew; relax with a drink while enjoying our live bands. Avian & Exotic Parrot Rescue will be bringing along all sorts of exotic birds for you to see. Pop into the craft marquee where you will find stalls, exhibitions and working craftspeople. Visit the trade stands for an opportunity to seek out some bargain collectables and antique tools. Children will love the kiddies fairground area with rides and the opportunity to visit the ice cream van or old fashioned sweet stall. Adults may welcome a refreshing pint in the beer marquee! Hot and cold foods are available all day.

Once again we welcome a variety of large steam engines, some old favourites and some of which will be visiting the rally for the first time. You may even have the opportunity to try your hand at steering one of the magnificent machines. We have an excellent variety of vintage tractors, classic cars, motorcycles and bicycles of yesteryear. You will also be able to see a fine collection of historic commercial vehicles and stationary engines many of which well be working to illustrate how they were used in days gone by.
A full programme of arena events will take place both days including parades of all of the classes of vintage vehicles mentioned with tractor balancing, steering a steam engine and a few surprises. Our arena events start at 11.30 each day.

The event is open from 10am until 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is only £6 for all adults and this year, to try to help families, accompanied children are free! There are additional fees payable for certain activities. Why not come and camp with us for the weekend for only £25 per unit. This year we are, once again, raising money for The Midlands Air Ambulance, a cause very dear to our hearts. We were able to donate a magnificent £3,500 from last year's event. The organisers are all volunteers who don't take a penny from the proceeds so please come along and support our local Air Ambulance. 

The rally organisers are kindly giving TWO family tickets to readers of this blog. Each ticket will admit four adults and any children under 16 who are accompanying them.
