Ashley Hall plays host for the 4th year running to another of our extremely successful steam spectaculars! This ideal venue, near Altrincham, provides all you need for a weekend packed with family entertainment with easy road access from the M56 and M6 motorways.
Performing in the main arena will be the Birds of Prey Displays with Ben Potter. As well as his display of a fascinating collection of birds of prey, Ben will be ‘free-flying’ his Eagle and Vulture Team throughout the weekend. A spectacular sight for all to see!
There will be a full programme of top steam fair attractions, including Steam Engines, Classic Cars, Vintage Tractors, Classic Motorcycles, Fairground Organs, Miniature Steam Engines, Stationary Engines and Vintage Commercials.
The event will also include: Trade Stands, Autojumble, a Craft and Fine Food Marquee, both Old Time and Modern Funfairs, Non-stop Arena Entertainment, Catering Outlets & Licensed Bar.

The flying displays and demonstrations on offer focus more on the birds being the star attraction rather than the falconry side that many people follow. Our team provides two flying displays per day, of between thirty and forty-five minutes in duration.
Whilst the birds are not flying they will be on static display throughout the day with a member of staff on hand at all times. Expertly trained staff are not only fully licensed and insured, but also extremely knowledgable and passionate, and will be available throughout the day to talk about the birds.
