Tractor Event Returns to Marshall’s Yard this Father’s Day

13 June 2022

The team at Marshall’s Yard are preparing to step back in time this weekend for a special visit from some vintage Marshall’s tractors.

The popular Tractor event returns on Father’s Day, Sunday 19th June, with more than 25 Marshall tractors due to take part this year. 

From 10am until 4pm tractor enthusiasts and shoppers will be given the chance to step back in time with a stunning display of these fantastic old vehicles which span almost two centuries of Marshalls Yard history, harking back to when the site was one of the leading manufacturers in the world.

The event is organised in conjunction with the Marshall Club who have once again organised an impressive display to include tractors dating back as far as 1930 and at least one steam roller from 1921. The event will finish with the club’s traditional tractor road run around the town centre. 

Ian Palmer, head of the Marshall Club said: “Following the cancellation of the 2020 Marshall Club meet due to Covid, last year saw the largest ever turnout of Marshall tractors and steam engines. For 2022, the meet returns to its customary date on Father’s Day and we hope to top last year’s event.

“The friendly meet is enjoyed by all ages and by both tractor enthusiasts and family shoppers. Please make sure you come along and see the tractors that were once built here up to 1998, forming a huge part of Gainsborough’s history.” 

Alongside the tractor display there will also be live music from Jacob Oldroyd and free face painting. 

Events and Marketing Executive for Marshall’s Yard, Charlotte Toplass, said: “We are delighted to welcome back the Marshall Club with their fantastic display of tractor engines.

“We love celebrating the heritage of the site and welcoming visitors to the centre to soak up the fantastic atmosphere this event always provides.”
