Where can I buy tickets from?
Tickets are only available through our website this year.
Why do I have to pay a booking fee?
All ticket sales through the website are subject to an administration charge. An administration fee is added to tickets to cover the cost of providing both a pay booth service on the day of the event and the provision of a contact centre prior to the event, plus the investment required to provide the ticketing software. These amounts are set in relation to the ticket price. These charges help us to cover the costs involved in running our ticketing website and booking line.
I no longer want my tickets, can I have a refund?
Tickets are non-refundable and all sales are final, Driffield Agricultural Society will not consider cancellations, refunds or exchanges, however if the Show is cancelled due to Covid- 19 the price of your ticket will be refunded.
I have ordered tickets online, but they have not arrived?
After completing your online order, e-tickets will arrive in a confirmation email. To facilitate ease of access please ensure e-tickets are PRINTED out (including the bar code) and shown to the gate staff upon arrival.
Tickets that are not printed but just on Phones, Tablets etc are permitted but can cause large delays for you and other customers.
If you have not received your e-tickets, it is usually due to a typo in the email address. Please first check your junk folder, if your tickets are still not their please contact email email@example.com

Why is the Driffield Show held midweek?
Driffield Show is a traditional Agricultural Show with a very high level of local agricultural and trade support and this remains vitally important to the Society. We understand that not everybody can attend due to work and most children are at school, we work closely with schools across the county on the Schools' Food & Farming Day, where we welcome over 1,600 school children each year to the Showground for food and farming education activities in May. We would encourage parents that would like to bring their children along to speak with their school as the Driffield Show is very much thought of as an educational event and many schools in the area close for the day.
What facilities are available for babies and children?
The Show is a family friendly event and we do as much as we can to assist families with young children and babies. Baby change facilities are available at all permanent toilet blocks on site.
What should I wear to the show?
Driffield Show comprises both indoor and outdoor areas so think practical and wear appropriate clothing and footwear. As always, the British Summer is very unpredictable so it would be advisable to opt for layering clothing and bring a waterproof. Particularly in 2021 we advise you to bring an umbrella if the forecast isn’t so great and a picnic blanket if the sun is predicted to make an appearance.
Am I allowed to bring a picnic?
You are very welcome to bring a picnic with you, although you may wish to sample some of the fantastic food which is on offer throughout the Show. Alcohol is available in the licensed bars on the Showground.
