We are BACK for 2024!

Get ready to relive history and experience the power of vintage machinery at the Abbey Hill Steam Rally. Held at the picturesque Yeovil Showground, surrounded by the rolling hills of Dorset, this annual event takes place over the May Day bank holiday weekend, from Friday 03 to Monday 06 May. It offers a unique opportunity to admire a long line of beautifully restored steam engines and explore rows of vintage tractors and vehicles dating back to the early 20th century. The sound of the steam whistles and the sight of these majestic machines in motion will transport you back in time.

In addition to the main attraction, visitors can also enjoy a variety of other activities such as live music, delicious food stalls and a fun-filled fairground. With over 100 trade stands selling a variety of goods from household items and plants to toys and jewellery, there's something for everyone. The entertainment programme includes ring events, live bands and singers in the Beer Tent, and in the evening the fun continues with more entertainment in the marquee and the fairground stays open late.

The gates open at 8:00 am and with ample parking and facilities, it's a perfect family day out. Don't miss your chance to witness history in motion and make memories that will last a lifetime.
