Have you ever wanted to drive a steam engine? Maybe ride in a vintage lorry, an army tank or a tractor?

If so, why not come and Have-A-Go at the Greenhous West Mid Showground on Saturday 12th May 2018

Have-A-Go Day
Lingen Davies Have-A-Go Day

The County of Salop Steam Engine Society, organisers of the Shrewsbury Steam Rally are holding a ‘Have-A-Go’ Day between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 12th May at the Greenhous West Mid Showground, off Berwick Road in Shrewsbury. The event is being held in aid of the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund and The Rural Charity.

Spaces will be limited and participation at the Have-A-Go Day is strictly by pre-registration only with a minimum charity donation of £25 per person. This will enable the participant access to a number of the ‘wacky vehicles’ that we will have on the showground. Participants are welcome to bring along a small number of guests, who won’t be permitted to travel on vehicles, but, in return for small donations on the day, can be accommodated in the various towed trailers etc. All vehicles are subject to availability on the day.

Lingen Davies Have-A-Go DayChairman, Edward Goddard said “We are offering an opportunity for members of the public to participate in a charity event, involving a number of the vehicles normally seen at the Shrewsbury Steam Rally. It offers a chance to steer a Traction Engine or Steam Roller, and ride in a Vintage Lorry, Army vehicles, tractors and other vehicles.  There is chance to view stationary engines and ride in trailers, as well as speaking to engine and vehicle owners. It promises to be a fun event in aid of worthy causes”.

This event is jointly promoted by the teams behind the Shropshire County Show and the County of Salop Steam Engine Society.
