Chipping Steam Fair (2013)
The first Chipping Steam Fair was held in 1998 to support efforts to raise funds for a new Village Hall. What was originally seen as a one-off event has now become an annual event interrupted only in 2001, when that year’s event had to be cancelled because of the outbreaks of Foot and Mouth which had plagued so much of the countryside during the year.

The 2013 event was held over the Bank Holiday Weekend, 25th - 27th May, at the Green Lane Showground. As well an excellent array of steam engines and classic vehicles of all varieties, a host of other attractions were on display including helicopter rides, classic cars, steam demonstrations, vintage tractors, military vehicles and a replica Spitfire as well as other events such as the dog agility trials.
