Driffield Show to go-ahead in new 2 day format

The Driffield Agricultural Society have announced that the Driffield Show will be going ahead this year in a new two day format.

The new dates are 21st and 22nd July 2021. 

David Tite from the Driffield Agricultural Society has said in an email to Society members that the team are currently working hard on what this years show will look like. 

He goes on to say: "Initially we are basing the attendance on 4,000 visitors per day, this is based on Step 3 (17th May) of the Governments Roadmap and ensures expectations are not set too high in case of any slippage with regards the Step 4 announcement expected on the 21st June.

"We can be sure that this years Driffield Show will be different to previous years with ramped up handwashing and alcohol gel points throughout the Showground. Our Covid 19 response will change over the coming months as we move through the Prime Minister's plans so it is very difficult to say right now what we can and cannot put on at this stage, although we aim to keep as many of the traditional stalwarts of the day as we possibly can. We will keep in touch with you over the coming months as things change.

"On or around the 21st of June we will be making the decision as to whether your attendance at the show will be for one day or for both. You will appreciate that if we are working to a 4,000 person per day attendance we will need to get you to choose your optimum day, if all restrictions end on the 21st June we would then hope to invite you along for both.

"Whilst Membership continues to be sold over the phone, by post or through our website, general tickets for the Driffield Show will only be available on-line. This will ensure we fulfil the rules on track and trace and can cap the sale of tickets as and when necessary. Tickets go live on the 1st April through our website www.driffieldshowground.co.uk .

"Tradestand forms will be emailed out on or around the 9th March to all our previous exhibitors and will also be accessible on our website.

"Section meetings have already begun looking at all aspects of the Show and section schedules will be available on line in the coming months.

"Whilst the content is not certain it is superb to be able to say once again – I look forward to seeing you at this years Driffield Show!"

As always, Great Driffield Radio will be bringing you a flavour of what you can expect at the show and we will be broadcasting LIVE from the event over both days too. Make sure you're tuned to 107.2FM!
