Getting revved up for Rotherham Show

REV up your engines, for the vintage vehicle rally and all the other delights of the Rotherham Show are just weeks way.

The town’s biggest annual event, hailed as the biggest free show of its kind in the North, is back at Clifton Park on September 12 and 13.

Perennial favourites such as the Vintage Vehicle Rally, Horticultural Show, the Fresh Produce and Craft Marquee and the Rotherham Diversity Festival will make a welcome return, while the Rother FM Music Festival at the bandstand is making its debut this year, featuring tributes to Katy Perry, Take That and Queen.

Sunday’s music will be provided by the likes of Steph Little, Colin Yates Big Band, Jez Lowe and Britain’s Got Talent finalists, The Jive Aces.

The Yorkshire Strongest Man Competition is also new for 2015 and will take place over the two days, with a novice competition and an open section which will include a car and transit deadlift, monster log, loading medley, car carry and the fearsome Atlas challenge.

The Main Arena will host Reel Stunts in Action, the K9 Freestyle Dog Dancing Display and Hulk’s Strongman Division, which will feature car carrying and tug-o-war displays.
