Driffield Show, one of the largest agricultural shows in Yorkshire, is back for its 146th year.

The popular event was one of the casualties of coronavirus last year and did not go ahead in 2020 as planned, however, it’s back for two days this week.

The agricultural event will commence over two days, tomorrow (July 21) and Thursday, July 22 from 9am to 5pm.

What’s on?

Families and friends can enjoy an array of fun activities and indulge in the food hall, where attendees will find a variety of local, national and international cuisine.

Activities range from a popular dog show to an equestrian section where you can attend the Local Ridden Ponies event and the Show Jumping classes.

Collaborating with Woolley & Parks Estate Agents, the show will also be hosting the Bolddogs Motorsports - a freestyle motor stunt display show which will be performed on both days.

Some other exciting events include a school garden challenge, horticulture and handicraft classes, a Heavy Horse and livestock section and the celebrated Great Driffield Radio Activity Arena show.
