National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

09 July 2018

Two-days celebrating music and food are in store for one lucky YFC member who has just won tickets to Jimmy’s Festival on 21-22 July in a NFYFC Facebook competition.

Jojo Chomse, from Whitley Chapel YFC, will be joining more than 20,000 people over the weekend where acts including Paul Young, the Happy Mondays and The Bluetones will be playing.

NFYFC had four festival tickets (worth nearly £300) to giveaway and offered them up on Facebook. To enter, YFC members were asked to leave their club name in the comments and Jojo was picked at random from more than 100 entrants.

“I’m pretty surprised and very pleased to win the tickets. I’ll take three fellow YFC members with me, not sure who, it’ll all depend who’s got the least work on,” said Jojo when she heard she had won the tickets.

The closest Jojo has ever come to being at a festival is going to the Young People’s Village at the Royal Welsh Show, which she said she loved. But she is delighted to have the chance to enjoy a weekend on Jimmy Doherty’s farm.

“I’ve watched quite a few programmes with Jimmy and I especially like Jamie and Jimmy together as a duo,” said Jojo who has been a YFC member for nine years and is currently the Northern Area Secretary. “Jimmy always comes across as a down to earth guy with a proper passion for food and educating people about food and its source.”

All YFC members can get a discount on tickets to Jimmy’s Festival here.
