WSRA STEAM AND VINTAGE RALLY

WSRA Rally Fields  Norton Fitzwarren  Taunton  TA4 1BH

3 & 4 August 2024

The Volunteers Make it Happen.

The Steam and Vintage Vehicle Rally, Taunton, has something for everyone, from steam engines and vintage cars to motorcycles and archery. And that’s not all! You’ll find a working area, stationary engines, a locally stocked bar, plenty of food options, trade and craft stalls, and our ever-popular brake van rides on the heritage railway. With over 10,000 attendees, it’s one of Taunton’s most significant events and the UK’s only rally affiliated with a railway.

It’s all for a good cause – raising money to maintain the UK’s longest standard gauge Heritage steam railway.

But what sets this event apart is the friendly, family-oriented atmosphere. The organisers take pride in providing attendees with a safe and enjoyable experience.

The event takes around two weeks to set up and a week to take down.

The volunteers make it happen led by the chairman, Ben.
