The Great Bloxham Vintage Vehicle & Country Show or Bloxham Steam Rally (to give it the more usual name), is held at the end of June nr Banbury, Oxfordshire. The Rally is organised by the Banbury Steam Society.

HistoryEdit

Fowler 80 sn 21090 at Bloxham 09 -IMG 6194

Restored Fowler 80 with Vickers winch

The 2009 event was the 41st that has been held.

The 2010 event guide called the event The Banbury Rally @ Bloxham 2010. Apparently there have been changes to some of the organising committee and some of the site layout was revised (not to every bodies satisfaction from some comments heard & read).

The Event featuresEdit

The event is a National Traction Engine Trust Authorised Event. Exhibit classes include:

2013 EventEdit

Steam line-up at Banbury 2013 - IMG 0147

2012 EventEdit

The 2012 rally was cancelled due to the excessively wet weather in the weeks prior to the event resulting in some parts of the site being waterloged.
