Tractor world show Newbury

Postby fergiemark » Sat Oct 07, 2017 5:21 pm

Hi all

After missing a number of shows in the last couple of years I thought I'd pop down to Newbury and have a look. Well all I can say is it was really disappointing there were more food outlets than stalls selling tractor spares. If you are into model tractors and tools then this is the show for you and I would suggest the organizers change the name of the show to Model tractor and tool world. Not worth the £10 entry fee.

Unfortunately that's the way things are going. The dream catcher sellers and tat tents that sell stuff that will come in handy to chuck out later are taking over.

Try Newark this weekend. Most of the displays are static which is a bit disappointing, there are loads of part stalls, auction on Saturday, jumble on Sunday some years better than others, very few tat tents and animals for the missis to ooo and aaaah at.

If you look at the list of trade stands the first one doesn’t look too promising. Probably better than dream catchers though. Even Fergie ones, is there such a thing?

Unfortunately the levels some people have to stoop to to try and earn a living are lower than I thought.
