What they're saying about us

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

    Nicki Firth, Colchester Poultry Club
  • It was a splendidly organised event. Thank you. So nice to see a proper Farmers Show.

    Clare Dobie, Equestrian Exhibitor
  • 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
  • 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.

    P. Pearson, Colchester Vintage Motor Club
  • 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.

    Paul Dewing, Managing Director – GCS Alarms
  • We have been supporting the Tendring Show for over 50 years and see it as our main shop window to  promote both the NFU and the NFU Mutual locally.

    Philip Breary, NFU Mutual, Colchester
  • 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 just wanted to email to say that we really enjoyed being a part of your event on Saturday. We had many repeat customers through the day and lots of compliments on our set up. We would love to come back next year!

    Caroline Butler-Bird, Hempland’s Coffee
  • Once again another very successful show, Well Done, Congratulations. I would like to thank you very much for my very forward Car Pass, I really appreciated it and so did the family because it meant they did not have to ferry me around the Car Park.

    Mrs J. Smith
  • I would like to thank you for a most enjoyable day on Saturday, it seemed like the traditional weather for the Show returned to normality thank goodness, I hope it all worked out with a good attendance etc.
