IT IS not long until the Orsett Show on Saturday 6 September and there is lots of work going on behind the scenes to ensure this year’s Show is a great success. A new part of the Show for 2014 is that the Prize Draw for this year’s Thurrock Community Chest will be drawn at the Show at 5pm. The top prize is a car kindly donated by Tony Levoi Vauxhall, which is very exciting as you can quite possibly attend this year’s Show and be the owner of a new car by the time you leave as the last of the tickets will be sold during the day prior to the Draw at 5pm. (Please see attached further details of Thurrock Community Chest).
Another first for the Orsett Show is that this year the cast of the Thameside Theatre’s Pantomime will be at the Orsett Show including Jeff Brazier (from ITV’s Dancing on Ice and This Morning) who will be playing the Prince in this year’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Pantomime. Jeff will be drawing the winning Thurrock Community Chest tickets at 5pm as well as mingling with the crowds throughout the afternoon.
Set in 30 acres of countryside, the annual Orsett Show is always a great day out for all the family with lots to see and do. The Show is one of the oldest one-day Country Shows in England and this year is the 108th Show which is a great achievement. Last year, the Show attracted a very impressive 12,000 visitors. There will be marquees featuring Horticulture, Agriculture, Hobbies & Handicrafts, Schools, Craft Stalls and over 100 Trade Stands arranged around the outside of the Show Ground. In the centre of the Show, there’s always an ever-changing programme of exciting displays in the Grand Display Ring and events throughout the day in the Horse Rings. There’s certainly something for everyone at the Orsett Show!
