What they're saying about us

  • I travel nearly 600 miles from the north of Scotland to be part of such a friendly atmosphere. Tendring is a Show like no other. There are no empire builders, everyone pulls together to make it a really great occasion. I hope to be able to make it for many years yet, well done everyone.

    Brian Brinded, The Rabbit Whisperer
  • 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.

    Anne Hutchby, Sid Hutchby & Sons Ltd

  • 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

  • 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.
