ONE of the oldest country shows in England is set for its 108th outing on September 6.

The Orsett Show, at the Orsett Showground, off the A13, will return with a wide range of fun activities throughout the day.

It will feature an array of agricultural and horticultural events, such as market stalls, horse and cattle parades and a collection of steam engines and classic cars.

More than 100 trade stands will be showing on the day, highlighting the best of local produce, as well as a school marquee showcasing the talents of pupils from Thurrock and beyond.

Those who want to be involved in trading at the show have up until the end of the July to book their spot.

Tickets go on sale from May 1. For more information, to buy tickets and to book a stall, go to
