    Jan Williams Essex Storytellers
  • A lovely, traditional agricultural show, lots to see, plenty to do, entertainment for all the family.

    Nicki Firth, Colchester Poultry Club
  • Tendring Show is a fun and friendly local agricultural and family show ran by local groups and organisations for mainly local people and those people who would like to travel to see such a unique yearly event. We love the show as it is a relaxing day to meet up with a lot of people you know.

  • Come rain or shine this friendly show still has the wonderful atmosphere it’s always had since I first attended the Show back in the 1970s

    Mark Gates, A Touch of Silver
  • Our Ice Cream stall in the Food Hall has always been popular come rain or shine – lots of regular faces visiting us each year.  The cookery demonstrations give the Food Hall a real buzz – It is always such a busy show and offers a really great family day out.

    Jane Hadley, Hadleys Icecream
  • I have been exhibiting rabbit netting and ferrets at agricultural shows for longer than I care to remember. Now, at 69 years of age, there are only two shows I will do, and Tendring Hundred is one of them!

    Brian Brinded, The Rabbit Whisperer
  • The Tendring Show is one of our local shows and it is good to support them as they treat us as part of their very large team and we feel part of the family it is nice to see all the familiar faces.

    Angie & Rick, Colchester Bird of Prey Display
  • I had such a lovely time on Saturday, it was a fantastic show and the children loved it!

    Emma Wraight, Birkett Long LLP
  • Myself and family always really enjoy the Tendring Show. So much for everyone to see and do. My 2 year old is tractor mad, so he especially enjoyed watching the display’s in the main arena. Well done!! Another fantastic day out.
