Netley Marsh Steam & Craft Show


Fairground Rides

1971 - 2024

The Netley Marsh show was first held in 1971, when it was a one day show called The Puff-in, where local steam engine owners brought along their engines to entertain the visitors. The aim of the show was to raise funds to pay for urgent repairs to St Matthews Church. 

Following the success of that aim and the general enjoyment that was had by everyone who attended the show, it was decided that this should be an annual event.


The show has been going ever since, now a three day event with traction steam engines and a wide and varied range of vintage vehicles and engines, added to which there is always a wide range of entertainments for all ages.


A number of charities are supported locally, in return for the help freely given to help in the smooth running of the show. The local scouts, church and school members, rugby club, canoe and diving clubs, plus many others.
