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!

Countdown to the Show

What they're saying about us

  • We attend hundreds of events across the country and the Tendring Show is consistently one of our busiest one day Shows. It also helps that it is well organised and hassle free, hopefully we’ll be attending for another 10 years….

    Ryan Jepson, Ryan Jepson Cheeses
  • 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.

  • Tendring Show is a happy family show with a strong sense of the agricultural community it serves.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Wanted to say thank you so much for such a great day. The family and I had a fabulous time and enjoyed everything we saw.  Everyone seemed to be having a wonderful time and it was great to catch up with a few ‘old’ faces.

  • 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.

  • 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.
