About the Society:
The Warwick Vintage Tractor and Machinery Society was formed in 1980 by a small band of local enthusiasts who met initially at the Durham Ox public house, Rowington, Nr Warwick to consider starting a club for like minded people.
Since that first meeting the Society has met monthly from September through to March at the Warwickshire College, Moreton Morrell, which was formerly known as the Warwickshire College of Agriculture. At these meeting guest speakers will come alond and give a talk, accompanied by a slide show or film on a diverse but interesting array of subjects, other evenings take the form of a quiz night, or a film show.
In March or April the annual Society Auction night is held, this is both informal and very friendly and usually raises much needed revenue for the Society.
Our monthly meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month, starting at 7.30pm in the Lecture Theatre, which is situated in the Alan Parton Building at Warwickshire College, Moreton Morrell.

Other Society events take place throughout the year, we hold an annual ploughing match in the Warwick or surrounding area, attend Kenilworth Show and other local events often taking along the Society trailer. This is where members and friends, both old and new can enjoy a cheerful cup of tea or coffee and generally find a good selection of cakes and biscuits to hand.
Membership is approx. 80 – 100 with members coming from all over Warwickshire and the adjoining counties. Members are from all walks of life and all age groups bound by their interest in vintage tractors and machinery, some members own vintage tractors, engines or garden machinery, others do not, but above all the Society is a club for enthusiasts, run by enthusiasts and anyone wishing to join or just come along to a meeting to see what it is like is given a warm welcome.
