What’s on in Tendring

There’s plenty to see and do across Tendring, so it can be hard to know where to begin. If you’re looking for a place to start, why not come to one of the many events taking place over the next year – and make Tendring a regular visit and not just a home to the Corbeau Seats Rally?

A bumper line-up of events is shaping up across Tendring for 2022, in a boost for local residents, businesses and tourists alike. Highlights include:

Tour series cycling – a round of the Tour Series will hit the streets of Clacton on Thursday 19 May, seeing pro cyclists take on laps of the town centre in a fast-paced and viewer-friendly event.

Clacton Airshow – In the height of the summer it will be all eyes to the skies for the return of the Clacton Airshow with a full throttle programme.

Now in its 29th year the Airshow is taking place over 25-26 August with twilight flights on day one, and ongoing negotiations with the Red Arrows about appearing on both days – with the RAF display team already including the event on its initial calendar for the year.

Tendring’s Events programme – Alex Porter, Tendring District Council (TDC) Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said events like the rally play a vital role in the area’s economy.

“We have some amazing, top-class events going on this year – with these just some of the highlights, each of which has more going on around it and all of which are free for people to enjoy,” Cllr Porter said.

“You can keep up to date on what’s on, whether a TDC event or other local activities, by downloading the LoveTendring app and following our social media channels, both the council’s and the Essex Sunshine Coast too.

“It’s important that we don’t lose sight of what these events bring to our district. Not only are they fantastic spectacles for our own residents to enjoy, but they support the visitor economy by encouraging tourists to Tendring where they can spend money in our local businesses too.”

The LoveTendring app is free to download on both Apple and Android devices.
