Next month’s Tendring Show will celebrate creativity in the countryside after last year saw more than 20,000 people flock to the one-day event.

Taking place on Saturday 8 July, the Tendring Show was first held in 1899. It remains an important event in the local calendar and brings together the rural and urban communities of north Essex.

Organised by the Tendring Hundred Farmers’ Club, the show maintains its agricultural heritage with displays of agricultural machinery, livestock, and food on sale from local producers.

Show president for 2023 is local businessman Steven Rose, managing director of Rose Builders, a family-run firm established in 1896. With strong links to the event and the local farming community, Mr Rose’s father Bill was show president in 2004.

“Since childhood, I have been fascinated and inspired by creating, designing, and making things,” said Mr Rose. “There is so much creativity that goes on in the countryside that is not seen or appreciated.

“This led me to want to ‘shine a light’ on some of the talent and creativity that goes on around us with this year’s theme. I hope you will visit our special theme area and be inspired to wonder, to think, to create, to design, and to make.”

Tendring Hundred Farmers’ Club chairman Will King said: “Last year’s show was a tremendous success and early signs are that we can expect an even greater number of exhibitors and trade stands back on the showground this summer.

“Visitors can expect that special Tendring Show atmosphere that celebrates our agricultural heritage and the best of our local communities, including brilliant entertainment, plenty of shopping opportunities, livestock showing classes, big machinery, and small animal tents.”
