Kirkby Stephen and Brough Classic Commercial Vehicle Rally

Location: Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria, CA17 4QN

Dates: 26 March 2016 - 27 March 2016

The 18th Kirkby Stephen and Brough Classic Commercial Vehicle Rally will be held over Easter Weekend, Saturday and Sunday 26th and 27th March 2016. 
The rally, which is free to both public and exhibitors, has about 250 examples of commercial working vehicles from the last century displayed on about 7 site locations in the 2 towns. All locations, which can be as much as 5 miles apart, are connected by a free regular classic bus and coach service. 
There are also Edwardian fairground roundabouts and a steam shooting gallery, catering and trade stalls. The local population have taken to the rally with such enthusiasm over the years that many charity stalls are erected along the main streets. 
The rally has grown to be one of the largest and most successful commercial vehicle rallies in the country and attracts entries from as far afield as Aberdeen, London, South Wales and Cornwall.  The many thousands of visitors give a well needed early-in-the-year economic boost to the 2 communities and the atmosphere is terrific. 
The event has it's own Facebook page - keep an eye on this for updates
