FROM FERRIS WHEEL 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 a mini land rover. Celebrating the countryside, stroll among the marquees and exhibits of painters, potters, fabrics, walking stick makers and blacksmiths, preserves, brewers and bakers.

Enjoy the entertainment in the main ring throughout the day; watch the impressive Essex Police dog unit capturing a fugitive, a chance to meet the Vikings in their encampment, handle birds of prey, and admire magnificent Heavy Horses ridden to music. 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, drive a mini rover 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 acoustic melodies.

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 Air Ambulance. What a great way to spend a day in the country!
