We have five family tickets to the Gloucestershire Vintage and Country Extravaganza to give away – it's packed with classic caravans, cars, bikes and more!

The Gloucestershire Vintage and Country Extravaganza is back for the 43rd year – and you could be there!

Practical Caravan has teamed up with the event's organisers and we have five family tickets to give away. Each ticket permits two adults and two children to attend the show, which runs between 4 and 6 August 2017.

Gloucestershire Vintage and Country Extravaganza is held at South Cerney Airfield in Cirencester, between 10am and 5pm on each of the event's three days. Dogs are permitted, so long as they are kept on a lead.

So, what's in store?

There will be lots to see at this year's event. Of course, we are always drawn to the large vintage caravan display and we're sure you'll love taking a look, too. But there's so much more.

If you enjoy crafting, there's something for you. There are also displays of classic cars, including a section dedicated to historic American cars, former emergency vehicles, military vehicles, buses and coaches, industrial trucks, bicycles, motorbikes, tractors and commercial vehicles.

Indeed, to give you an idea of its scale, 200 tractors, close to 700 classic cars, 30 vintage caravans and 70 bicycles are expected to descend on the airfield this August.

There will be plenty of impressive steam vehicles on show, too – there is even a section which will showcase 30 miniature steam engines.

But that's not all! Visitors will also be treated to a Battle of Britain Memorial flypast on the Saturday and Sunday.

The live arena will provide entertainment throughout, including dancing tractors, and during all three days of the event you can enjoy a free vintage bus ride around the showground.

Or have fun at the vintage fun fair, watch a Punch and Judy show, ride the waltzers and more.

Over in the Countryside Arena there's a dog show – and you can enter your canine companion! You can also enjoy ferret racing, falconry displays, sheep dancing and sheep shearing, or meet the reptiles and alpacas.

There are plenty of places around the site to refuel during the day, including an ever-popular vintage tearoom, where you can also enjoy 1940s music and Lindy hop dancing.

So if this sounds like your cup of tea – pardon the pun! – enter our competition to win one of five family tickets to this jam-packed event. Just fill in the form below. Good luck!
