We have given monetary donations to Weeting Saxon Football Club, Weeting Church and the 1109 Thetford Squadron Air Cadets so far, for their help and support with the rally this year. We are so grateful to all our volunteers who give their time up to help us put on a great show for you all.
We are already busy planning for the 2024 Weeting Steam Engine Rally & Country Show and hope to put on another great event for a family fun day out! Dates for your 2024 diary are Friday 19th July to Sunday 21st July.
This year we are very pleased to welcome back a Burrell steam engine from New Zealand, which has been in the UK since 2020 having a complete overhaul by Neil Gough and had boiler work carried out by Mervyn Mayes. The engine will be doing a few shows this year, before returning home to New Zealand.
Burrell 'Duke of Canterbury' built in 1910 was exported to New Zealand working commercially, with ploughing and haulage up until 1955, entering preservation in 1958. This engine exhibited here at Weeting Rally twice before, in 2001 and 2019, we welcome her back for 2023!
Below are some photos from her working days, with credit to the current owner Phil Kerr.
Only two weeks to go and we'll be in full swing of day one of our three day event!! Lots to see, lots to do and plenty of fun to be had...join us for a family fun fay or weekend out!
Book your tickets today.
If you would like to pre-book your public camping spot with us for the weekend, download the form today!
As of tonight the form will be taken off the website and pre-book camping will be closed.
You will still be able to turn up on the day for public camping, arriving on Thursday 13th July after 2pm. Please do not turn up before this, you will be parked in a holding bay until you can be sited.
We are looking for new sponsors this year to join our existing sponsors! Can you help?
Sponsoring our event helps with covering the costs of running such a great show! There are many costs that go into putting on such an event, from marquees, to security, toilets, fencing, and so much more, the list goes on!
We would love it if you would be a sponsor of the 2023 Weeting Steam Engine Rally & Country Show.
Being a sponsor means we share your business with our followers on social media and add your business to our website, helping to create a community....and you get to come along and enjoy the show!
Please get in touch if you would like further information.
A big thank you to our current sponsors :
We are pleased to welcome on board new sponsors: Tollgate, Chase Trade Centre, STV and Hollie's NTL.
