Tendring Hundred Show

Essex County's Premier Agricultural Event

Saturday 9th July 2022

Lawford House Park, Nr Manningtree, Essex

Essex County’s Premier Agricultural Event.  Attracting in the region of 20,000 visitors the Show welcomes people of all ages and interests, so come and join the fun!

The Show  is organised by Tendring Hundred Farmers’ Club with a hard working  committee of 20 volunteers building to over 250 volunteer stewards on Show day.   Established in 1899, this year will be the 105th Tendring Show!

Set in beautiful parkland setting of Lawford House Park, the Tendring Show combines top class entertainment, animals, from Horses, Cattle, Sheep and Goats, to Rabbits, Pigeons, Poultry, Guinea Pigs and Fancy Rats!  We have over 250 trade stands and exhibits, including a large undercover Shoppers Market, beautiful Art & Lifestyle Marquee, huge Food Pavilion championing local produce, Education Area and Countryside area with its own man-made pond.

Every year the Show Committee decides upon a Theme and this year’s Theme is “Food Farming and Fitness”.  We will be highlighting how farming food products are very much part of a healthy lifestyle, as well as demonstrating the importance of local produce and outdoor activities.  We are delighted to have Hasty’s Adventure Farm with us again this year, providing informative and enjoyable displays for our younger visitors, and plenty to get involved and active with!
