National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

11 February 2011

Roll up, roll up - young farmers are here to entertain you!

February half term week sees the return of the annual performing arts festival of the Herefordshire Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs and this year the theme is Entertainments. Aylestone Business & Enterprise College is the new venue. Only 5 Clubs have decided to take part but the teams of members aged between 10 and 26 each intend to put on a great show with the aim of collecting the Ian Fraser Memorial cup awarded to the winners.

The shows will be supported by the One Plus competition - 6 minutes of almost anything goes ! - and this year new to the competitions programme is jazz dancing.

The entertainments competition and one plus competition will be adjudicated by two well-known local performers - Bev Jenkins, who is a member of the Guild of Drama Adjudicators, and David Harding who started his stage career in Teme Valley Young Farmers Club. The event is being kindly sponsored by the Herefordshire NFU. Ms Becky White will be judging the jazz dancing competition and "behind the scenes" the Revd Rana James and Mr Trevor James will be deciding which Club has raised the most money for charity during 2010 using the most ingenious methods. The festival will run from Thursday 24th February to finals night on Saturday 26th February at Aylestone Business & Enterprise College, Broadlands Lane, Hereford.

The performances on Thursday and Friday start each night at 7:15 pm with the Saturday final starting at 6:30 pm. There will be refreshments on sale and for tickets or further information you can call the YFC office on 01432 274187 or visit the website at
