Plans are well in hand for the 138th Driffield Show taking place on Wednesday, 17 July and tickets can be purchased in advance from various tourist information centres and from offices of Yorkshire Regional Newspapers
Driffield Show continues to be fantastic value for money with advance tickets now being available to purchase at the discounted rate of £12 for adults, £10 for senior citizens, £4 for children plus in an attempt to keep the prices for families down to an absolute minimum a family ticket can be purchased in advance for only £28 at Beverley, Bridlington and Humber Bridge tourist information centres.
This year, although the show will not be increasing in physical size, show organisers are confident that the content has improved to ensure that visitors have a fantastic day.
As well as the exceptional livestock and carcass section visitors can look forward to browsing around over 450 trade stands, handicraft and horticulture marquees, fur and feather section and companion dog shows.
The rural craft demonstration area, which increases in popularity each year, will again contain a wealth of traditional crafts and the show will play host to the fifth Landscape and Fencing News sponsored National Fencing Competition which continues to strengthen and creates a huge amount of both national and increasingly international acclaim.
As well as the wealth of equine expertise that we come to associate with the Driffield Show, the main ring will also feature entertainment from the Bolddog Ling Motorbike Display Team.
As Honda’s official and the UK’s number one motorcycle display team, the Bolddog Ling team base their show around the world’s largest and most sophisticated mobile landing system. The show features the UK’s top ranking freestyle motocross riders, incorporating the latest heart stopping tricks as usually only see on TV.
The ample car parking facilities continue to be free. For those opting to use a greener form of transport, following the success of the initiative last year a free shuttle bus will be provided between Driffield Town Centre, Driffield Train Station and the Showground and will be operating every twenty minutes.
