What they're saying about us

  • Come rain or shine this friendly show still has the wonderful atmosphere it’s always had since I first attended the Show back in the 1970s

    Mark Gates, A Touch of Silver
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

    Mr Tony Irwin, Chairman NES Signs
  • The East Anglian Jack Russell Club and racing team are pleased to be associated with the Tendring Hundreds Show once again this year. We look forward to our day at the show meeting people on our stand and entertaining with our terrier racing in the countryside arena.

  • 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.
