Tractor & Country Show
The Tractor & Country Show at Blake House Craft Centre on 9th & 10th July, 10.30am-5pm, looks forward to welcoming you with lots to see and do for a great day out and fantastic fun for kids and big kids alike!
You can have a look round and also have the chance to climb on our massive tractors and see static engines on display. This is a rare opportunity to get behind the wheel of a tractor or combine harvester and see the impressive variety of agricultural machinery we use here on our working farm.
The proceeds from this event will be going to Essex Air Ambulance, who will be joining us for the weekend with their own stand full of EAA goodies and information about their life saving work. On Sunday make sure you keep your eyes peeled, as we are expecting a visit from their helicopter (providing they are not busy on a call) so you can meet the crew and sit inside the helicopter!
This year is bigger and better than ever before with our new Kids Arena! We have quad bikes and rides for the kids, face painting and glitter art, ice creams and candyfloss plus a selection of tractors and vehicles that you can climb on and sit inside! We also have a Bounce Zone this year as well as our Zoo Lane, where you can meet the snakes, parrots and rabbits or enjoy a donkey ride! This year, the Country Market with a variety of stalls will be offering locally made goods, from a cheese and pie stall to popcorn and sweets, ponchos to kids clothing and jewellery to books and lots more besides! On Saturday there will also be plenty of additional stalls at the Blake House weekly boot fair. If you get hungry, visit Premier Catering for a coffee or perhaps one of their delicious burgers. Alternatively, Timbers Restaurant will be open, offering a full restaurant service or why not enjoy a refreshing pint at the bar?
During your visit, you can also challenge friends to a round of crazy golf on our Minigolf course, visit the adventure play park and of course take a look around the unique range of Craft Centre shops for some summer inspiration. So come and visit us at Blake House Craft Centre for a fun packed weekend for everyone!
