Sunday 6th August is the day that our five parishes get together and put on something great for the community and beyond. This year’s show builds upon a winning formula of attractions, competitions and displays honed over the last 83 years.
This year, we will be bringing back the favourites and guests will be treated to displays from Colchester Birds of Prey, delighted by Tendring Dog Agility and wowed by Colchester Model Aircraft Club (who keep us so transfixed we need neck braces!). 2016 also sees the return of the Caledonian Pipe Band, the arrival of some fabullous Austin 7s and the ever popular K9 quackers – the ‘duck dogs’; intrigued? Come and see for yourselves!
Outside the main ring, the fringe events keep us entertained and we welcome performances from East Anglia Kite Flyers, Morris Dancers and the Colne Endeavour Music Club Band. Beyond the passive entertainment, we can get our hands on and get involved with the experts in the Main Marquee and try our hand at circus skills, table tennis or spinning and weaving.
If that’s not enough, the dog show and the horse show run at the same location so you’ll have plenty to do all day long. In fact, so much you’ll want to grab a Pimms or a beer and chill out on the hay bales while the kids go on the bouncy castles!
