National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

02 May 2014

With less than seven days to go, excitement is mounting for what is set to be the biggest YFC event in recent years.

More tickets have been sold in advance of the weekend than in the last 10 years, and with Radio 1 DJs performing every night, NFYFC is expecting even more wristband sales on the doors.

Radio 1 DJ Aled Haydn Jones has already tweeted about the event: “Just realised one of my favourite DJ gigs of the year the Young Farmers AGM #yfcagm is a week Sat! Put a smile in (sic) my face :)”

On Sunday Young Farmers are also hoping to top the charts with the Essex FYFC single Put that Hoedown and it is hoped everyone will be performing the dance routine in the Empress Ballroom – including Radio 1 DJs Scott Mills and Chris Stark.

Entertainment highlights include:

  • Radio 1 DJ Jameela Jamil will DJ on Friday night, Edith Bowman and Aled Haydn Jones from Radio 1 will be playing to the crowds on Saturday night and Scott Mill and Chris Stark will hit the decks on Sunday night.
  • Three live bands will perform including Tzars, Boomin and tribute act Killer Queen.
  • National competition finals of NFYFC’s Entertainments, Choir, Disco Dancing and Senior Member of the Year will take place throughout the weekend. 
  • YFC Ski launch and a chance to win two ski holidays worth £399.
  • Pub quiz, Darts Championships and Comedian Herbie Adams. 

As well as radio celebrities, leading figures from the world of agriculture will be joining YFC members at the Agricultural and Rural Issues Forum 2014, supported by Defra, which this year will discuss the topic of Young Farmers and technology – adapting farming for the future.

NFYFC’s Annual Convention, which is sponsored by Massey Ferguson, returns to Blackpool for a second consecutive year and it will be the 22nd time it has been hosted at the seaside resort.

Claire Worden, NFYFC’s Chairman of Council, said: “We are really excited about returning to Blackpool this year after such a brilliant weekend event in 2013 – and let’s make sure we top the charts while we’re there with Put that Hoedown!”
