I’m looking forward to it, the line-up sounds like a really exciting and varied one, I’ve seen Shebangg, Clear Vinyl, Booyaka, and Barrel’o’Baddies before and they are are all awesome. Madison, Fight the Bear, DC Fontana and Threepoint2 also sound really great from what I’ve heard so far.

BVMC Vintage Tractor Run

Today The Bridgnorth Vintage Machinery Club held it’s annual Tractor Run today.  They went through  Bridgnorth High Street , so I thought I’d go and have a look

It  featured a convoy of about 100 Vehicles, which  first assembled in Severn Park in Low Town before making there way up to the High Street for a Lunch-Time display, which is where I saw them

From there they then returned back to Severn Park in the Afternoon for another Display. Fortunately The weather was great so they had a large number of people turn-out for the event.
