Due to coronavirus concerns the 2020 event has regrettably been cancelled. We plan to run again on 10th & 11th July 2021. However, even though we cannot welcome Lord Roberts as guest of honour on her 120th anniversary, we can enjoy videos of her recently uploaded to YouTube. Stay safe everyone! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0ZWrO5YhaYYVi7MQWNkrhw

Event History

Market Lavington used to have its own factory, producing award winning steam engines, on the site of what is now the Scout Hall. However, Mr Cambridge the inventor of the eponymous clod breaking roller, needed more space and better communications so the factory was moved to Bristol.


Rallies used to be organised on The Elisha Field by Mr John Kyte for a number of years and many in the village still remember those days.  A group of organisers decided to resurrect the event in 2018 with the support of the Parish Council. Due to its success the event now takes place on the 2nd weekend of July each year. Photo JJB Images.
