Tendring Hundred Show cowsThe Tendring Hundred Farmers’ Club was founded in 1899 with the aim of making new technical knowledge available to local farmers in an effort to improve animal breeding and stock rearing. The original inspiration of the Tendring Hundred Show was to help educate the farming community. 102 Years later education is still very much centric to the experience, sugar coated in oodles of fun and entertainment.

The Tendring Hundred is a family show that brings together rural and urban communities in the Essex region. While still maintaining its agricultural roots through large displays of farm machinery and a focus on rural pastimes, the Show offers challenging and informative displays, an open air shopping experience with around 250 trade stands and exhibitors.

The Show is always a fun family day out – full of interest, entertainment, education, and local country colour – don't miss it!
