About the Lister Tyndale Steam and Country Show
Right on the edge of the Cotswolds located close to the river Severn between Bristol and Gloucester, is the charming village of North Nibley. Of considerable antiquity, North Nibley was once famous for its manufacture of woollen cloth.
Nibley House is one of the few Georgian great houses that is still a private family home. And is the venue for the annual Lister Tyndale Steam and Country Show. One of the United Kingdom's premier steam rallies, the rally has around one thousand exhibits each year with an average attendance of over 12,000 people.
Steam enthusiasts come flocking to the event each year for a chance to reminisce and relive ‘the good ole-days’. Also out on display amongst the stunning views of the countryside are the traction engines, miniature engines, commercial vehicles, motorbikes, buses, military vehicles, and much more.
The Nibley House Farm has been organising the annual event since 1991. Over the years, local and national charities have benefitted from the show’s activities. Profits made by the Lister Tyndale Steam and Country Show go towards charitable donations.
