Tractor World Expands
A TRADITIONAL SHOW season opener, Tractor World, will be bigger than ever with the entire Three Counties Showground set to accommodate more of what you want to see, on 27 - 28 February 2016.
Show organiser Mark Woodward told me: “We now have four exhibition halls, enabling us to feature more machines under cover than ever before, as well as the vast outdoor areas.”
This means that Tractor World now has the ability to include classic commercial vehicles, Land Rovers, more plant, steam engines, both full size and miniature, in addition to the hundreds of tractors and agricultural machines displayed to be admired and enjoyed at the Malvern, Worcestershire venue.
Special features for the 2016 show include a Ferguson tractor and Massey Ferguson 70th anniversary display, tractors from Eastern Europe – including a special Zetor section, the 80th anniversary of Ransomes MG crawlers and a special anniversary BMC Mini, Nuffield, Leyland 154 organised by the Nuffield Leyland Marshall Club.
There will also be a new, larger restoration area and more specialist companies, regional and National club displays, stationary engines, horticultural equipment and classic plant. Plus, the UK’s largest trade gathering of specialist spares, parts and tool companies and model/toy, giftware, books and literature retailers will also be in attendance.
On the Saturday, Howard Pugh will be staging his annual auction, which attracts thousands of lots each year. Telephone: 01531 631122 or visit the website for further details: www.hjpugh.co.uk
A Machinery Sortout and Spares Day will be held on the Sunday, along with a classic van and truck display and the charity road run into the Malvern Hills.
Admission prices remain excellent value and are as follows: Adults - £12.50 (£10 advance), Weekend - £20 (£15 advance) and under 15s are admitted free. For those that wish to camp on the showground, a weekend camping pass (three nights) for two adults has, once again, been pegged at £60 – or just £50 in advance. Dogs on leads are welcome.

Mark also told me: “We are also pleased to announce that in addition to the traditional Tractor World Spring Show, a new indoor outdoor event called Tractor World Autumn will take place on 8 - 9 October 2016 at Newbury Showground, Chieveley, Berkshire RG18 9QZ. This will feature the new buildings that are being built on the site as we speak. The show will feature four-wheel drive conversions, particularly Roadless, County, Muir Hill and others.
