THIS year, Trac­tor Fest, the largest an­nual vin­tage-trac­tor fes­ti­val, cel­e­brates its 10th an­niver­sary and the theme for the land­mark show, on June 10–11, is the legacy of Henry Ford, who also marks an an­niver­sary; it’s 100 years since Ford be­gan the pro­duc­tion of Ford­son trac­tors, which trans­formed UK agri­cul­ture at a time when our farm­ing man­power was en­gaged on the West­ern Front. At Newby Hall, North York­shire, the fes­ti­val is or­gan­ised by the York­shire Vin­tage As­so­ci­a­tion and spon­sored by Ch­effins auc­tion­eers. There will be 1,500 ex­hibits of not only vin­tage trac­tors, but also en­gines, com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles, cars and mo­tor­cy­cles from around the UK and Europe and the event will cul­mi­nate in the ever-pop­u­lar March of the Trac­tors through Ripon town cen­tre. Adults £11.50, chil­dren £8.50, free for the un­der-fours— tick­ets in­clude en­try to the gar­den and ad­ven­ture play­ground. Visit­by­­tor-fest-2017 or tele­phone 01423 322583.
