CRASH Box and Classic Car Club of Devon present: The 35th Historic Vehicle Gathering at Powderham Castle, Kenton, nr Exeter on Saturday, July 5 and Sunday, July 6, from 10am to 5pm both days.

This eagerly awaited annual event features cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles and wonderful working steam engines on display, including over one thousand cars with representation from over 75 different car clubs plus nearly 500 private entries, giving a vivid cross section of motoring history from the early1900's to the 1990's. Among the club stands appearing will be Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Daimler, Austin Healey, Ford, MG and Triumph.

There will be a staggering cavalcade of steam engines, restored to their former glory, giving a fantastic display of sight, sound and smell. Over 20 full-size engines and 25 miniature engines will be exhibited.

There will be two demonstrations on both days by the famous South West Axe Team. Childrens amenities include children's entertainers, childrens workshops, the traditional steam engine tug of war, face painting and childrens rides.

As in previous years there will be a huge trade stand section and auto jumble offering a wide range of motor related sales and services plus many other stalls of general interest to appeal to all tastes.

Catering is provided to the usual high standards both in food outlets and the bar marquees offering a range of real ales, other bar drinks and soft drinks. A large variety of food outlets offering both hot and cold food will be available.

During both days there will be live entertainment in and around the bar marquee including country dancing, which will be open to all.
