Cumbria Steam Gathering - Press Information

For over four decades, the Cumbria Steam & Vintage Vehicle Society Ltd has been bringing together vintage vehicles from far and wide to Cark Airfield in Flookburgh, near Grange-over-Sands, for one massive summer gathering.

The dates for your diary for 2018 are Saturday July 28th and Sunday July 29th.

Exhibitor entries for the 2018 Steam Gathering closed at the nd of March and with over 1100 catalogued exhibits this year`s show is sure to maintain the tradition of being able to present as wide selection of preserved vehicles and memorabilia as in previous years.

A number of changes have been made to the field layout to make better use of the hard standing and allow parts of the site affected by the adverse weather conditions over the last few years a chance to recover.

In order to broaden the scope of the event, the upper age limit of vehicles and machines, previously set at 1982, has for this year been advanced to take in exhibits with a build date of up to the end of 1985.

The main arena attraction for this year, the Kangaroo Kid will no doubt enthrall the crowds by doing unlikely things with a quad bike, the Pantonic All Stars will again provide the unmistakable sound of the steel band and after a well received debut in 2017, Mr Alexander`s Travelling Show returns for a second time.

If you would care to see pictures of Steam Gatherings past, they can be viewed by opening the the galleries section of the website of the Cumbria Steam & Vintage Vehicle Society,
