A popular steam fair returns to Scorton Showground this Father’s Day weekend to offer 500 steam, vintage and classic vehicle exhibits.


On 18 and 19 June, from 9am to 5pm, Scorton Steam will offer daredevil arena shows, an ‘ear-rattling’ mini tractor pulling contest, white knuckle and children’s rides, music, and craft, food and drink stalls after a two-year hiatus.

Headlining the 16th Scorton Steam is the Stannage Stunt Team, a Barnsley-based troupe of professional motorbike riders.

Scorton Steam event organiser Craig Whittingham said: “We are thrilled to be back – it has been a long two years for everyone involved in Scorton Steam.

“Some of our exhibitors, stall holders and visitors have been with us from the start, so there’s a Scorton Steam family that can’t wait to reunite!

“We believe we are back with a vengeance. We have our most exciting lineup – the Stannage Stunt Team is fearless and will take your breath away with its daring.

“Our tractor pullers are all souped-up and raring to go, our vehicle exhibitors are at the final polish stage, and everyone is eager to welcome what we hope will be a bumper number of visitors.”
