We were lucky enough to spend this past weekend gawping at beautiful vintage and custom gear at the 2013 National Drum Fair.

If you weren’t at the show you really did miss a belter (next year’s is already confirmed for 27 and 28 September at Cocks Moors Woods Leisure Centre), but fear not, as we have rounded up just a few of the sights of the 2013 National Drum Fair.

We’d like to thank all involved with the show for their help and hospitality. For more details head over to www.ukdrumfair.com.
