The Heritage Section is a huge part of the Kent County Show and continues to grow year on year. From steam engines to classic cars, and tractors to motorcycles, we’ve got all types of transport on show. This year is the 100th year of the Marshall tractor and we’ll be celebrating this with a ‘Marshalling of the Marshalls’ area in the Heritage Section. Also not to miss is our oldest exhibit, a 1904 Humber, a must see for any petrol head! All these vehicles can be seen in motion in the Heritage Ring throughout each Show day.
For something to get you on the edge of your seat, Kent Youth Trials will also be occupying the Heritage Ring with their daring stunts and tricks. With riders as young as five years old, these daredevils are sure to bring the action.
The model tent is also a hidden gem of the Heritage Section with a plethora of miniature steam engines, nostalgic jukeboxes, and models that really showcase the intricacies of engineering on scales both big and small. New for this year, the Rochester Bell Society will be bringing with them a belfry for you to try out rope splicing and bell ringing.
For anyone who exhibits within the Heritage Section, a brass plaque is awarded to commemorate the Show. This year, our brasses were designed by 13 year old Cameron Kemp who was inspired by the centenary of the end of the First World War. The brasses feature a Mark IV female tank which sits on a poppy shaped plaque. The Heritage Section will be selling these brasses to raise funds for the Royal British Legion, find them at the Stewards Rest next to the Heritage Ring.
