Ryedale Folk Museum is gearing up for its 15th annual Tractor and Engine Day on Sunday.

More than 40 vintage vehicles will be on site at the attraction in Hutton-le-Hole where visitors can talk to owners and enthusiasts about their treasured tractors, including a heritage David Brown and a grey Fergie collection.

Trophies will be given to the winners in the categories of Most Original, Best Tractor and Best Engine. The Charlie Greyson Trophy will be presented for the Best Fordson.

Winners will be announced at 1pm and a celebratory tractor road-run will take place around the village at 2pm.

Kevin Simms, museum manager and tractor enthusiast, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to see some of the finest tractors and engines in private ownership in this region and meet the characters that own them. The event has become a popular annual fixture at the museum and visitors are often surprised by the variety to see.”

Emma McKenzie, the museum’s event officer, added: “Whether or not you know your Fergie from your Fent or your Wolsey from your Lister this is an event to keep the whole family entertained – with plenty of action, noise and fascinating stories.”

The event runs from 10am to 4pm. Normal admission fees apply.
