Back by popular demand, The Essex Country Show comes to the beautiful Weald Country Park in Brentwood at the end of September, incorporating the ever-popular Festival of Dogs.

There will be plenty of activities for all the family, from rural crafters on site showing you tips and tricks to craft your own products to independent trade stands offering you the chance to purchase some truly unique gifts and homeware products. There will be free entertainment throughout the day with Main Ring and Countryside Ring acts with stunt bikes and horse displays and the opportunity to sit and take it all in with great local bands and community groups providing the musical – and dancing - entertainment.

For real foodies, cookery demonstrations will be running throughout the weekend, including a baking demo and opportunity to meet James Hillery from The Great British Bake Off 2017. Some of the best chefs from the region will be showing you how to make their favourite meals and offering you tips and advice for when you hold your own dinner parties. There will be additional talks from craft alcohol producers, foragers and so much more…

There will be a separate area for children with face painting, livestock and a petting zoo so you know that they will just have the best time. Combine all of this with a fantastic selection of food and drink on offer and you really do have a top weekend ahead of you.
