Orsett Show is ready to go!
8:00am Sunday 19th August 2012 in News
THE countdown to this year’s Orsett Show has begun.
The main attractions for 2012’s show, on Saturday, September 1, will be a breath-taking display by the Adrenaline Tour Team, from 1.30pm, who will be amazing visitors with stunts on their quad bikes.
Getting in on the action before that at 1pm, will be the Rockwood Dog Display Team.
An interactive circus skills centre looks set to prove popular with youngsters, where they will be able to get up close to a variety of animals, including ferrets.
People will also enjoy show favourites, like the collection of vintage traction engines, classic cars and the birds of prey show.
There will also be a traditional baker show with demonstrations on flour growing, milling, making and kneading the dough, as well as a dog show, fly-fishing demonstrations, and all the usual craft, hobby and horticultural stalls.
Helicopter rides are available again this year, and early-birds who pre-book their flight at least the week before the show can save £5 off the regular price.

At 12.30pm it’s the horse and hounds shows, with the heavy horse display on at 2pm and steam engine display at 2.45pm.
