Driffield Show tickets must be bought online

With just three weeks before this year’s Driffield Show, organisers have said that tickets must be purchased in advance and are only available online.

Following the success of the two-day format at last year’s Driffield Show, this year’s popular event will once again take place over two days on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st July.

Having listened carefully to comments from visitors and exhibitors last year, Driffield Show organisers have decided to once again cap visitor numbers to 15,000 each day, maintain the wider avenues and make the Showground as open and welcoming as possible.

This decision means that to enable visitor numbers to be closely monitored, all tickets for each day of the Driffield Show are only available in advance and once again online only via the Show’s website – www.driffieldshowground.co.uk.

Driffield Agricultural Society chief executive David Tite said: “Last year’s Driffield Show was a success for all involved and we learnt some great lessons putting the event on.

“More space was wanted by all attending and we were able to deliver this by widening the alleyways, capping the attendance each day and by reformatting a lot of the larger marquees and spaces.

“Following on from this experience, 2022 will maintain a lot of the positives experienced by our visitors and traders, giving traders more time to focus on the individual customer without the added pressure to move them on, and allowing the visitors to enjoy a leisurely day moving around the stands, exhibits and activities.

“This will also lessen the impact on those not attending the days, with more manageable traffic flows around the site.”

Now in its 146th year, the Driffield Show will again combine its winning formula of celebrating the region’s agricultural heritage whilst also taking the time to embrace new and exciting developments.

With many new attractions and activities being planned for 2022, Show organisers say they are proud that Driffield Show will still be the Show that has ‘something for everyone’.

There promises to be plenty of opportunities for those enjoying a spot of retail therapy, with the aim of having the usual 300-plus trade stands to choose from, ranging from lifestyle and fashion to crafts and local produce.

All entertainment, livestock and equine classes will be split across the two days so visitors do not have to worry which day they choose to visit.

The main ring entertainment will see Atkinson Action Horses make a welcome return to the Show.
Atkinson Action Horses, based in Eastrington, have spent more than 20 years training horses and riders for both film and TV.

The equine stunt performers last appeared at the Driffield Show in 2017 when they wowed the crowd with their exciting stunts and performance and visitors to next month’s Show are promised an astounding display of tricks and stunts and are advised to be prepared for ‘heart in your mouth’ demonstrations of astounding acrobatics.
