Driffield Show 2024: Entries Deadline Looms

Green fingered growers and gardeners and talented bakers and crafters still have time to get their entries into this year’s Driffield Show.

The closing date for entries into the Handicraft section for this year’s show, which takes place on Wednesday, 17th July, is this Friday, 5th July, while entries for the Horticulture section should be in by Monday, 8th July.

There is plenty of opportunity to get creative with many classes for art, design, crafts, photography and cookery for children and adults in the Handicrafts section.

While the Horticultural section has classes that will appeal to all green-fingered growers, with classes for floral art, flowers, fruit and vegetables and corn classes.

Schedules and entry forms for both sections are available from the website www.driffieldshowground.co.uk and from the Driffield & Wolds Weekly office.

Driffield Show, England’s finest one day agricultural show

Driffield Agricultural Society has a long history of recognising the achievements of people working within local agricultural and agricultural related industries in the area.

In recognition of the long service of individuals, the Society annually presents Long Service Awards to recognise the dedication and long-term commitment of individuals who have 40 years or more consecutive service with the same company.

The awards ceremony traditionally takes place prior to lunch on Show day.

Last year, the award went to agronomist David Clark with 46 years of dedicated service to the farmers of East Yorkshire.

Driffield Agricultural Society is looking to hear from anyone who may be eligible for a long service award with in excess of 40 continuous years’ employment with the same company.
