National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

10 February 2014

Five BBC Radio 1 DJs will play at Annual Convention 2014 in Blackpool, and the weekend is set to be the biggest YFC event in the last 10 years.

DJs Scott Mills and Chris Stark will play the Sunday night of Annual Convention, when members will be dressed in club shirts. Jameela  Jamil is back by popular demand and will entertain thousands of Young Farmers on Friday night in the Winter Gardens, while Edith Bowman and Aled Haydn Jones will welcome the crowds on Saturday night to see members dressed as something beginning with Y,F or C.

Three bands will also be on stage over the weekend, including three piece pop/rock band Boomin, five piece party band the Tzars and on Saturday night a Queen tribute act will perform, as voted for by members in an online poll.

The entertainment for the weekend was announced during the first Council meeting of the year in Coventry.  NFYFC tweeted live updates throughout the meeting using the hashtag #yfccouncil and the news was re-tweeted by followers more than 200 times.

When NFYFC asked if the DJs were excited about their sets, Chris Stark and Aled Haydn Jones tweeted back:

@Chris_Stark "@NFYFC it's going to be so much fun!!!"

@ahj (Aled Haydn Jones) "@NFYFC CANNOT wait! #BestNightOfMyYear"
 

The new line up was met with excitement from members following announcements on Twitter.
