The Molly and Johnny Poteen Show will be back by popular demand. This is a story of poteen making from long ago. Johnny and Molly get up to some crazy antics as they go about trying to make poteen. It is hilariously funny – a show not to be missed.
Vintage, classic and kit cars, classic and vintage tractors, military and commercial vehicles will fill the rally field along with motorbikes and stationery engines. There will be a variety of trade stands on the field and a Craft Marquee which is always a big attraction.
