Watch daredevil riders perform the craziest of feats, inches from your very eyes as we bring you vintage thrills, chills and spills on the oldest surviving wall of death! Get lost in the nostalgia and allow your senses to indulge in the roar and smell of 1920's Indian motorcycles as the Demon Riders cheat gravity, risking life and limb for your pleasure. A show not to be missed!
Originating in the 1900's the sport of board track racing was very popular in the United States. Mile long raceways were constructed out of wood. Long straights and banked turns allowed riders to reach awesome speeds, fighting and risking everything for the win.
After too many fatalities, the sport was banned. But the racers needed a new challenge, by eliminating the straights and making the wooden track 90 degrees perpendicular to the ground they started to entertain the public and a new attraction was born, ' The Wall of Death'.

Whirl Wind Aircraft
The first S 55 prototype new in November 1949 and was the first helicopter with a really usable large cabin which flew in all roles, both military and civil. Westland Aircraft Ltd acquired a licence to build the aircraft in which a number of modifications were made throughout the development of the Whirlwind such as adding an Havilland Gnome gas turbine engine. RAF squadron 22 was initially equipped with Westland Whirlwind HAR.2s until August 1962, these were later replaced by the Whirlwind HAR.10s from August 1962.
The squadron was based at RAF Thorney Island, the early Whirlwind suffered from low power which seriously reduced its lift capability during hot weather. One of its successes was the rescue of a family from a yacht that was caught in a severe storm in or around Portsmouth harbour. The three were rescued one at a time and the winch man, a mechanic, was obliged to wait on deck until all were lifted off. The yacht broke up shortly after he was removed The Whirlwind Har Mark 10 is now a purely civilian aircraft which has recently been refurbished (to be the lightest Whirlwind yet) and painted yellow, the colour of which it wore when flown with 22 squadron. The helicopter is now owned by Mr Andrew Whitehouse.
Dartmoor Hill Pony Display team
The Dartmoor Hill Pony Display Team is a youth run annual project from the Dartmoor based charity, Friends of the Dartmoor Hill Pony.
This years display tells its audience the story of the Dartmoor Farmer through a jam-packed 30 minuets of Musical Rides, Racing, Jumping
through fire, charging and so much more! The purpose of this is not only for allowing the 29 children that are part of this loving family to
be having fun on ponies, but also for raising awareness of the Hill Pony and it's vastly changing ecological safety on Dartmoor.
Friends of the Dartmoor Hill Pony are dedicated to supporting all the ponies on Dartmoor. All the ponies have a value to the ecology of the moor, and are good enough even with a bit of white here of there. Shape or size is not important as long as they can do the job they have adapted to do; to graze and maintain the difficult moorland environment. Dartmoor Hill Ponies are the ones that still thrive on Dartmoor and are the inheritors of the harsh landscape that has shaped their genes. Unlike other organisations protecting the Dartmoor Ponies, we do not believe that a Dartmoor pony should it a breed standard of certain colours and shapes, decided in 1925. The hill ponies live on the moor and are bred for hardiness and temperament so they can survive and be managed and in turn, keep the moorland vegetation and habitats as they should be. For this reason, they are “true children's friends,” and the basis of many future competition animals and the perfect tool for looking after Dartmoor.
