Next year’s show will take place on the weekend of 3-5 August 2018

The 43rd Annual Gloucestershire Vintage & Country Extravaganza 2017 hailed a Roaring Success

The 43rd annual Gloucestershire Vintage & Vintage Extravaganza took place at South Cerney Airfield, Cirencester on Friday 4th thru to Sunday 6th August 2017 and was hailed a huge success, despite the inclement weather. The show attracted more than 18,000 visitors over the three days and raised money for both local and national charities including the Cobalt Appeal Fund and Diabetes UK.

Whilst visitor numbers were naturally down on Saturday due to the wet weather conditions and thunderstorms, crowds turned up in abundance on the Sunday.
The show is organised by The Stroud Vintage Transport and Engine Club (SVTEC) and is the biggest event of its kind ran entirely by volunteers, and would not be able to take place without the huge support of the dedicated section leaders, exhibitors, volunteers and visitors. Since moving to South Cerney Airfield in 2011 the show has almost doubled in regards to exhibitor and visitor numbers. This year saw a growth of 25% more exhibitors on site.

Martyn Slater, Chairman of SVTEC, said: “I am very proud and grateful to our team of volunteers for all their hard work both during the weekend and on the build-up to the show. The weather was not kind to us and caused its own challenges. To lay on an event of this magnitude, with the quantity and quality of exhibits is by no mean feat and takes a lot of commitment and dedication. A big ‘thank you’ to all the exhibitors for your continued support’.

He continued ‘the show has been running for over 40 years, and we have never experienced the traffic management issues that occurred upon exit. It saddens me, after all the hard work that the team put in to making it such a successful show, that it was marred by these delays. We understand the frustrations caused, and apologise profusely to those caught up in it. Please rest assured that we are taking it very seriously, it’s at the forefront of our minds to rectify it going forwards. South Cerney is an active airbase with limited exit points, but we are already liaising with the airbase, Highways and Police in regards to the 2018 exit strategy. I appreciate that it put a dampener on an otherwise excellent show. Please keep an eye on the website for the traffic plans for next year’.
The Gloucestershire Steam & Vintage Extravaganza was originally conceived for steam enthusiasts but now includes a huge array of exhibits. Each year the team strive to make the show even bigger and better with the quality, quantity and array of historic displays and dioramas, this year included;

• Nearly 700 classic cars from pre and post war, including over 70 Classic American, plus 230 Motorbikes, scooters, 70 bicycles from 1903 - 1980, 30 miniature steam engines, 90 stationary engines, 70 full size steam engines, model engineering, 200 Tractors, over 80 Buses and Coaches, 120 Military Vehicles, 240 Emergency and Commercial Vehicles, 60 Industrial Trucks, 50 vintage Caravans and a large model Aircraft flying display.

• Jump4Heroes parachute display team will descend into the arena on all three days of the event. Jump4Heroes is The Royal British Legion Extreme Human Flight Team, made up of serving and former members of the Army, to support and raise awareness of the Armed Forces charities.
