Parades, competitions and a larger selection of vehicles than ever before are promised at a 20th anniversary classic transport rally.
Traction engines, buses and tractors will be on display for visitors to admire at the South of England Rare Breeds Centre in Woodchurch, near Ashford, on Sunday, June 22.
As the venue is a country farm park, ‘meet the animals’ sessions will add to the day, as will falconry displays, a butterfly tunnel and pig racing.
Visitors can take advantage of a reduced ticket price of £6 per person – that’s a huge saving on the normal prices – with under threes going free.

If you’re closer to the coast, then follow the hum of engines to the Herne Bay Classic Motor Show, also on Sunday, June 22.
Located right on the seafront for the first time, hundreds of cars, bikes and interesting vehicles dating back to the 1920s, including Model Ford Ts, Aston Martins, American classics, MGs and VWs, will be on show.
The event celebrates the 90th anniversary of the first Herne Bay speed trials, which took place in 1924 on the seafront. To complement the show will be retro markets, children’s entertainers and rides, plus music from Mel Harris, XYZ, the Electric Beatles, The Crooner and more.
The fun starts at 10.30am, and entry is free. Visit www.hernebaytp.co.uk or call 01227 868515.
