The humble potato, the best of British farming, coiffed cows, primped poultry and shapely sheep will be the stars of the 98th annual family show
Preparations for this year’s Tendring Hundred Show at Lawford House Park on Saturday 13th July are well underway and almost 25,000 people are expected to attend Essex’s premier agricultural and family show. This year’s show theme celebrates the humble potato, with interactive displays bringing to life for visitors how this important local crop is grown, processed and cooked with help from the East of England Co-operative and Fairfield Farm Crisps.
The Tendring Hundred Show was first held in 1899 and has become an important event in the local calendar and a unique opportunity to bring the rural and urban populations of North Essex and the surrounding area together. A family show, it maintains its strong agricultural heritage with large displays of agricultural machinery and livestock.
David Lord, Chairman of the Tendring Hundred Farmers’ Club said, “The Tendring Show continues to focus on the countryside and food and farming, offering fun and educational displays and an open air shopping experience with over 200 trade stands. It will be an action packed day of entertainment for visitors and families.”
