Gloucestershire Vintage & Country Extravaganza
Gloucestershire Vintage & Country Extravaganza
A view across the main arena while waiting for the parachutists. The fish and chip van was just on the edge of the catering area with the traditional fun fair beyond. The gallopers were steam powered but the yachts were electric. The big wheel was being turned by electricity generated by a showman's engine.

I have just been reading a letter about another event billed as a 'spectacular' that was anything but - this, however, firmly ticked that particular box. I had a lovely day and would have needed at least another one to get close to seeing everything properly.
