The countdown is underway for the 144th Driffield Show

The countdown is underway for one of the largest one day agricultural shows in the country as preparations are in full flow for the 144th Driffield Show which will take place on Wednesday 17th July 2019

Since it was first held in 1854, the Driffield Show has offered visitors a vast spectrum of attractions and entertainment.

As well as the exceptional livestock section, which continues to attract some of the area’s finest cattle, sheep and pigs, visitors can look forward to browsing over 450 trade stands, and visiting the handicraft and horticulture marquees, fur and feather section and family dog show.

There will be a return of the popular Heavy Horse classes, and following the introduction of demonstrations last year, the public will once again have the opportunity to view the horses being decorated and groomed in preparation for the show ring throughout the day.

This year, as well as a packed schedule of equine talent, the main ring will also feature entertainment from Joseph’s Amazing Racing Camels, the first time camels have been present at the Driffield Show!
