Steam Rally CANCELLED
2021 Rally CANCELLED
The Rally team have been hoping that it would have been possible to go ahead with the 2021 Rally.
We have now reached the time when we need to make a final decision. We have reviewed all the latest safety advice, and thought about the safety precautions needed, and the recent uncertainties caused by news about new Covid variants.
We have reluctantly come to the conclusion that there are too many uncertainties to allow us to go ahead, so we must cancel the event planned for 7 and 8 August 2021.
This will be disappointing news for our many exhibitors, volunteers and supporters, but we feel that there is no alternative. We will be contacting directly any exhibitors who have made tentative bookings. If there are any questions please email us or ring 01823 433856
We look forward to better news for next year’s Rally, planned for 6 and 7 August 2022.

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.

- working traction engines, tractors and road rollers.
