  • I always look forward to the Tendring show for no matter what your interests you will find something for you and as far as the Colchester Vintage Club is concerned it is the only event in the year that we attend as a static Show.

  • We have used the Show as a PR tool to show new technology for over 15 years and see many of our existing customers year after year. It’s a great day out and we always seem to generate new leads and we will continue our support to the Show for years to come.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Just to say well done to you and your team – excellent Show. Thank you for letting us extend our PR around the goat show – think the organisers like the extra people and upbeat day’s experience around them!
