Newby Hall Tractor Fest 2018
The largest outdoor Tractor Festival in the UK will take place at award-winning country house and gardens, Newby Hall.
The two-day festival attracts more than 10,000 visitors and 1,500 exhibits. The theme for 2018 is Two Cylinder Tractors focussing on 100 years of John Deere tractors as well as Amanco stationary engines and very early marques or orphan tractors.
