Caravans and campervans

The festival has been designed as a celebration of the amazing contribution made to British agriculture by young people from across the UK.

Young farmers will be camping on a farm, making memories with mates and meeting new people.

During the day there will be plenty to keep revellers entertained, including sports, competitions and other fun activities including a Wolf Run challenge. By night festival-goers will be partying hard to headline DJs and lively entertainment.

The festival is for anybody who is aged 18 or older on 2 May 2019. There is no upper age limit, but remember that this is a festival designed specifically with young people in mind.

The rule is, if you’re old enough to have kids who can attend then you’re probably too old.

Farmers Weekly editor Karl Schneider said: “We are incredibly proud of Britain’s talented young farmers and this Young Farmers Festival is sure to be the celebration that they deserve.

“In January we launched a survey asking young farmers what they wanted this event to look like and we were staggered by the response.

“Thanks to everyone who pitched in to help us – we’ve listened to what you want and are now acting on your feedback.

“The Farmers Weekly team has been working flat-out to build an event that rewards, motivates and inspires the future of our industry – and we can’t wait to see you there.”
