Tractor and Country Show
The Tractor & Country Show at Blake House Craft Centre on 8th & 9th 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 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 & Herts Air Ambulance, who will be joining us for the weekend with their own stand full of goodies and information about their life saving work. On Saturday 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!
We have bouncy castles, a climbing wall, traditional rides and a competition for the kids, as well as face painting and ice creams, popcorn and candy floss. There will be a petting zoo, where you can meet some of the farmyard animals or enjoy a donkey ride. On Sunday, you can try your hand at archery and don’t miss the fabulous charity race, where you can bag yourself a top prize of a hot air balloon ride!
There will be a wide variety of stalls, offering locally made goods, from pocket money toys to cakes and sweets, verses in boxes to personalised bags, as well as charity stalls, such as the RSPB. If you get hungry, visit the American eatery 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!
