Advance tickets for Driff Show

Advance tickets are now available for the 138th Driffield Show, which will be held on 17 July.

Organisers are confident that this year’s show will be better than ever to ensure that the thousands of visitors who flock there each year have a day to remember.

As well as the popular livestock section, visitors will be able to browse around 450 trade stands, handicraft and horticulture marquees, the fur and feather section and companion dog show.

The rural craft demonstration will contain a wealth of traditional crafts and the show will play host to the fifth National Fencing Competition. As well as the equine skills on display in the main ring, it will also feature entertainment from the Bolddog Ling Motorbike Display team.

Visitor car parking is free of charge, and a free shuttle bus will again be provided between Driffield town centre, Driffield station and the showground, running every 20 minutes.
