A country show featuring an exciting main ring programme, with heavy horses, small animals, a dog show, have-a-go dog agility and fly ball. There are also food and craft marquees, cars, tractors, archery, trade stands and entertainment for the wee ones.
From Ferris Wheels to furry friends, the Blackwater Country Show in Heybridge will stimulate the senses whether you try paddling a canoe on the lake, handle birds of prey or drive mini land-rovers. Celebrating the countryside, stroll among the marquees and exhibits of enthusiastic painters, potters, walking stick makers and blacksmiths, preserves, bakers, and brewers.
Enjoy the lively, interactive attractions in the main ring throughout the day; new this year admire the magnificent team of Heavy horses ridden in uniform to music. By popular demand the impressive Essex Police dog unit will capture a fugitive on the run, meet the Vikings in their living encampment with swords and traditional armoury. For fans of four legged friends, bring your pooch and enter into the fun dog show/agility/fly ball with a chance to win a rosette.
Children can enjoy meeting animals, ride traditional swing boats or ride a donkey, and there is lots of green grass to lay down your picnic rug and while away the day watching the Newfoundland dog rescue demonstrations or listen to some melodies while enjoy a refreshing drink.
This is a local, big show in its 13th year with a friendly, bustling atmosphere surrounded by soft hedgerows and natures wildlife.
In support of the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance. What a great way to spend a day in the country!
