The indoor craft fair which is situated close to the public entrance is very popular and always has something special to offer. The fair is organised for us by Colin Hornsey who is secretary to the Country Crafts Association. All the craft work is high quality and ranges from pictures, ornaments soft furnishings to home made edible produce.
Model Engineering Exhibition
Introduced to the show during the year of foot and mouth, 2001, when there was few places where the modellers could exhibit. The indoor Model Engineering Exhibition is now well established and integrated into the show. There are over 25 individuals displaying some exquisite items. Many of them have taken hours to put together with much care and attention to detail, including some matchstick models. Exhibits include miniature steam engines and stationary engines, agricultural machinery from days gone by as well as fairground exhibits, including fairground organs. There are models of all kinds vehicles covering the history of transport. Some of the machinery can be seen working, it is well worth a visit. The modellers are very happy to chat they have a wealth of information.
Stationary Engine Display
The stationary engine display now a familiar sight next to the public entrance. There are more than 15 individually owned pieces of machinery most in full working order. They include Lister, Ruston Hornsby, Wolsey and Amanco engines. There are also horticultural implements and water pumps to see.
Miniature Steam Engine Display
Around 12 miniature steam engines will be on show and you may even be lucky enough to see them in all their glory steaming around the showground. They add a real touch of nostalgia.
