 Sunderland Steam Spectacular

The clouds abated and the sun shone over the first Sunderland Steam Spectacular held at Herrington Country Park on the first Bank Holiday of the year 5th/6th May.

The park was taken over by traction engines, miniature steam engines, vintage cars, tractors, and classic motorcycles, not to mention entertainment, such as gun dog demonstrations, flying birds of prey displays and terrier dog racing, all proving a great success for the spectators. Without doubt, these crowd pleasers will return next year. For the young (and the young at heart) it was "all the fun of the fair" - plenty of rides to choose from and stalls to 'have-a-go.

We, the organisers, were overwhelmed by all the positive comments from the public, the exhibitors and of course the engine men themselves. We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your support and to give a special mention to our hard-working staff who were a real credit to us. - Great commitment and hard work from all paid off, making the 1st Sunderland Steam Spectacular a fantastic success... see you next year !

With Sunderland now under our belts, We look forward to the 62nd Pickering Traction Engine Rally - with your commitment and support, we promise you a fantastic 4-day show - so see you there!


theeventsorganiser Music Promotion on Friday 2nd May was a huge success. First on stage Wood Wars - three local under 16s wowed the crowd and received a standing ovation with their own brand of Mumford and Sons.

Next - Eddie and the Hot Rods still rockin strong, captivating the audience with classic numbers building up to 'Do Anything You Wanna Do'.

Tension built during the short interval then, with a loud bang, finally, Big Country sent the near capacity crowd wild with a mix of their greatest hits and tracks from their new album. Fans refused to leave and demanded two more encores What a fantastic and memorable night!
