Lots to See and Do
Set in 30 acres of Essex countryside in the village of Orsett, the annual Orsett Show is a great day out with attractions for all the family and is one of, if not the, most popular family event in Thurrock. It’s one of the oldest one-day Country Shows in England, with the 111th Show taking place on Saturday 2 September 2017.
Being a registered Charity run mainly by volunteers, the aim of the Orsett Show is to promote countryside matters, the borough of Thurrock and local businesses. Some 300 Companies, Schools, Organisations and Charities came together to promote their businesses, sell products, inform and network in a fun filled family day attended by just under 11,000 people in 2016.
At the Show, there are marquees featuring Horticulture, Agriculture, Hobbies & Handicrafts, Schools, Craft Stalls and over 150 Trade Stands. There’s an ever-changing programme of exciting displays in the Grand Display Ring and events and competitions throughout the day in the Horse Rings. There’s certainly something for everyone at the Orsett Show!
At this years show we will have a classic car display. If you would like to display your car at the show, please get in touch with the organiser at www.essexclassicvehicles.co.uk/
2017 Show President
Mr. Sean Walsh
I am delighted to be President of the 2017 Show and my family and I look forward to spending a wonderful day meeting with friends and visitors to the Show. I founded my construction business some 45 years ago and along with my sons, daughters and their families have been proud to be an active member and employer in the local community. We have been coming to the Show for many years now and really enjoy walking the Showground with its many attractions for young and old alike. The Orsett Show is a great Family Day out and I would encourage you to experience the day for yourself.
I look forward to seeing you on the 2nd September
