The Essex Country Show, which was once an informal gathering of half a dozen steam engines has since grown to be the largest event of its kind in the South East of England. Now in it's 26th year the show has seen a huge increase in visitor numbers. In the last 5 years alone there have been an average of 35,000 visitors. The show's emphasis is on rural crafts as well as agriculture and history.

Starting at 10.00am and finishing at 5.00pm each day, the show brings you a weekend full of fun for all the family.
