A POPULAR country show will showcase the "delights of dairy" at this year's event.

The 104th Tendring Hundred Show will take place in Lawford on Saturday, July 13 with about 20,000 people expected to descend on the village for the event.

Every year the show has a mix of stalls, children's activities, entertainment and livestock on show as well as performances in the arenas.

This year's show president is dairy farmer Philip Smith, who follows in the footsteps of his grandmother, who was president back in 1966 and his father, Andrew, who was president in 1992.

To fit with his line of farming the show's main theme with be dairy, focusing on dairy themed hands-on activities including a live milking parlour.

Philip said: “Dairy farming in the eastern region has a proud history.

"Visitors to the theme area at this year’s show will have a chance to see first-hand what we do as dairy farmers and the wide variety of dairy products we are responsible for producing and consumers enjoy.”

Will King, the newly appointed chairman of the Tendring Hundred Farmers’ Club, said: “There will be over 250 trade stands and exhibitions to visit.

"The trade stand space for the main showground was fully booked by mid-March which is hugely encouraging and a testament to the popularity of the show.

"It’s set to be another great event with lots of new attractions and our team of volunteers are working as hard as ever to prepare the showground for the day.”
