  2. The Great Dorset Steam Fair 2013 - Day 1 - A Dave Holden Video

    The Great Dorset Steam Fair or as may be known in the future as The National Heritage Show ( not quite got the same impact) signifies to me, the end of the Steam season of which 2013 has been a quite spectacular year.
    The GDSF climax bring together virtually all aspects of the steam/vintage/crafts/countrysi­de shows mixes in arena action with free-form motorcycle acrobatics,wheelie giant US fire-engines, and Monster car-crushing trucks and dancing girls to entertain the crowd.
    Getting around this 600 acre site is nigh-impossible for a single day out.
    So I have taken four days worth of footage
    This is day 1 Wednesday 28 August 2013.
    I hope you enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed filming.
    Let me know if you are in the video
