It’s full steam ahead for one annual show this weekend as the Carrington Rally returns.

The gates to the two-day event open at 9am on Sunday, with the show drawing to a close on Monday evening.

A statement from this year’s rally chairman Alex Bell said: “With all the planning almost over and everything now in place for the 2016 rally it is really going to be an action packed weekend.”

The event offers plenty to see and do over the two days, ranging from the usual steam engines to mini-models and trade stands.

With the theme for this year’s tractor show being 80 years of Ferguson tractors, the special guest is Little Grey Fergie, a tractor who is the star of a series of stories online which aim to ‘get kids talking about the world around them, and give them opportunities to play away from the screen’.

During the day and into the evening the rally has an assortment of entertainment and live music playing. Entertainment on Sunday evening will include rally singer Doctor Busker, performing in the beer tent.

There will also be a variety of fairground rides.

Around the show there will be vintage tractors, cars, lorries, motorcycles, steam engines and stationary engines to admire, and you can also browse round a wide selection of trade stands and the craft tents.

On Monday the show is set to feature a fly-past by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

The event also features a ‘revamped food court with an amazing Tea Tent provided by the Lincolnshire WI’.

Tickets to the show are £12 per adult for the weekend and £8 per day, with children under 14 entering 
for free.
