Countdown to the Show

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
  • 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.

    Mr Tony Irwin, Chairman NES Signs
  • 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 happy family show with a strong sense of the agricultural community it serves.

    Jan Williams Essex Storytellers
  • Just to say well done to you and your team – excellent Show. Thank you for letting us extend our PR around the goat show – think the organisers like the extra people and upbeat day’s experience around them!

    David Boyden, Boydens
  • The day at Tendring Show simply is not long enough to see all the different attractions that this Show offers

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

    Nicki Firth, Colchester Poultry Club
  • 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.
