Horham set for annual bygones rally

A 1952 Ferguson tractor cultivates the soil in the working demonstration at Horham

A 1952 Ferguson tractor cultivates the soil in the working demonstration at Horham's Bygones Jubilee Rally in 2002.

Originally started in 2002 as a one-off event to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee, Horham Bygones Country Rally has gone from strength to strength and become an annual feature.

The event – on Saturday June 9 2012 from 10am until 5pm – regularly attracts 100 historic tractors along with other farm machinery, historic military vehicles, motorcycles, stationary engines, cars and working horses.

As well as being a big draw for anyone who wants to see old farm machinery and horses in action it is also big fun day for all the family as there should be fairground rides for smaller children and a variety of stalls, including bygones and canal art, and lots of good food from local firms.

Last year more than 3,000 visitors flocked into the small village between Eye and Stradbroke for the event. Not only does the event generate much needed funds for the Horham Community Council it also offers charities, including the Royal British Legion and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice, the opportunity to attend, free of charge, in order to promote their organisations and raise funds.

Horham Bygones Country Rally is on Horham and Athelington Recreation Field of the B1077. In the evening, in the community centre, there will be live music with a licensed bar and food.

Admission: adults £5, concessions £3, family ticket £12, accompanied under 5s free.
