About the event

The preparations are already underway for the next Barnard Castle Truck Show , last year we had nearly double the amount of entry's then the previous year so whose knows what this year will hold . We have a fun packed show planned with a wide array of trucks on display from Vintage Steam Trucks to Custom Working Trucks that are spectacular to see with there gleaming chrome and polished paint work .

When you have finished browsing through the many rows of trade stands you can relax around the food area and choose something from the huge selection of food stands or sample a pint in the beer tent .
On the Sunday we have some of the North East's strongest men competing against each other for the Title of North Of England Strongest Man , you can see them pulling trucks and jeeps as well as a lot of other tests of pure strength.

Throughout the weekend there will also be Tractor and Truck pulling which is great fun to see , if you haven't seen it before you don't want to miss it, basically what goes on is tractors and trucks hitch up and try to pull a approx 60 tonne of weight on a huge sledge, the aim is that they pull the whole length of the track in one go it is marvellous fun to watch .

Evenings are well taken care of in the beer tent with nightly entertainment and
prizes. So if you fancy a full weekend of entertainment come along for the day or even camp for the weekend , pre booking is available .
