Tendring Hundred Show

A Fun Day Out for the Whole Family

The Tendring Hundred Farmers’ Club was founded in 1899 with the aim of making new technical knowledge available to local farmers in an effort to improve animal breeding and stock rearing. An annual Show was developed, which now attracts an audience of close to 25,000 over the course of the day.

The Tendring Hundred is a family show that brings together rural and urban communities in the Essex region. While still maintaining its agricultural roots through large displays of farm machinery and a focus on rural pastimes, the Show offers challenging and informative displays, an open air shopping experience with over 200 tradestands, as well as a wide range of exhibitions and much more.

The Show is always a fun family day out – full of interest, entertainment, education, and local country colour!

Tendring Hundred Farmers’ Club, the organisers of the Tendring Hundred Show, is a registered charity and as such any surplus income arising from the Show’s fund raising activities is invested in accordance with our charitable objectives.
