The Museum of East Anglian Life will be hosting TRACTION’15 - a hundred years of tractors on Sunday, May 10.

This event will draw together a range of tractors seen at work in the fields of Suffolk during the last 100 years.

Vehicles include the museum’s Burrell Ploughing engines, some of the earliest surviving engines to come out of the factory at Thetford as well as a working steam tractor and early petrol tractors that take us through both World Wars and into the days after World War Two.

Barry Salmon, Steam and Grease Team volunteer at the museum, says: “We have many local supporters who have wonderful collections of tractors. This will be a unique and fascinating event that shows how tractors have changed over the last 100 years.”

There will be demonstrations including cultivation activities. The museum will also be offering the chance to win a ride in the ‘jump seat’ of a modern 250 horsepower Case.
