Latest Steam Rally news
Steam Rally is planned to go ahead in 2021
Now the government has published a road map out of lockdown, the Rally team have agreed to go ahead with planning the 2021 Rally.
This will only be possible if the lockdown restrictions are lifted according to the published plan, and no new problems occur. We will keep reviewing the position but are very hopeful that we will be able to welcome everybody to this year’s rally, although we cannot be certain about this at present. Clearly, we will follow all safety guidance in force at the time and may have to change or remove some features because of the need for social distance.
We are contacting our exhibitors to confirm our plans, and invite them to book in their vintage vehicles and attractions. If you are an exhibitor and would like to come, please email us or ring 01823 433856
WSRA Steam and Vintage Rally
The Rally is held each year on the grass fields of the West Somerset Railway Association’s 33 acre Norton Triangle which is mostly level with a slight rise to the north west corner. Car parking is also on a grassy field to the east of the main site, courtesy of a local farmer, with access off the B3227.
We have plenty of opportunities for volunteers over the rally weekend each year. We need volunteers to work in the rally office and around the site, making sure that everything happens as it should and everyone has a good time and stays safe. If you would like to volunteer to help with the rally please email us.
