THE Castle Combe Steam & Vintage Rally is back for its 32nd year, with organisers expecting thousands at the event on May 20 and 21.

It will feature displays of vintage steam engines, tractors, cars, military vehicles and motorcycles. Fairground rides and attractions will keep the children entertained and evening music will come from live band Tundra, which will play hits from six decades.

Live arena events this year include the Terrier Racing display team, Shetland ponies, Kooky the Clown, radio-controlled buggies, mini Land Rover rides and sheepdog demonstrations.

 As with the previous two years, the event will raise money for local charity Jessie May, which provides care for terminally ill children within their own homes. 

It is open from 10am-6pm on Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday. Adult tickets £8 (for one day), OAPs £6 and children free.
