Thousands flock to Orsett Show

THE Orsett Show was a great success this weekend, with just under 11,000 people in attendance. The weather was unsettled in the morning but that didn’t stop the crowds from having a fun packed day.

There was great entertainment in the Grand Display ring including the Sheep Nationals which saw everyone cheering, lots of local children performing on the Family Stage, lots to see in the horticultural, agricultural and craft marquees as well as numerous trade stands and a yummy Food Hall.

The Horse Ring was very busy all day with lots of competitors, Jeff Brazier and the Panto Team from the Sleeping Beauty Pantomime at the Thameside Theatre, Grays were there to say hello and Jeff and the Mayor of Thurrock Cllr Sue Gray drew out the winning tickets for this year’s Thurrock Community Chest Grand Draw where a lucky gentleman from Sevenoaks in Kent won the car!
