It is promising to be bigger and better than ever with Essex Young Farmers inviting you to get involved in the Main Ring action with #TractorCrush. Tweet us which item you’d most like to crush with a massive tractor at #TractorCrush.

Our favourite suggestions will win VIP tickets to go to the show and get to crush their item in front of a huge crowd, in the Main Ring at 1:15pm. Gates open for a fun filled family day out at 9.30am with a whole host of tradestands, displays, exhibitors and fantastic attractions ready to keep you entertained.

The day promises to thrill, entertain and educate visitors in farming and rural life. A family favourite without a doubt is the Livestock and Equine Areas where children can watch and learn about animals large and small.

There will be live demonstrations in the Forestry Area and Game Fair and for those who love big machines take a trip round the Steam Engines and Vintage Tractors.
