“Events like this enables us to provide free educational events for children from across the East Riding and Hull. We have now held 4 Food and Farming Days, when we have welcomed almost 4,000 children to spend the day at the Driffield Showground learning about the journey their food takes from the farm to their table. The events have been so successful we will be holding the event again, inviting more children to experience the world of food and farming on Wednesday 20th May 2020.”
