Farmyard Party 30th Anniversary

Posted on


I must admit I am really looking forward to this year's Farmyard Party - even though I will be working throughout the rally. Many of you have been coming to our events, especially Farmyard, for years in support of MAG UK.  This year it’s a little special - it's Farmyard's 30th anniversary (if you didn't already know!) - and our pre-book tickets have been going exceptionally well, with many people returning after a few years to celebrate this and catch up with mates they may not have seen for a while.

To celebrate this anniversary, we are starting the party early on Friday, with Scott Dangleberry playing in Crusties Bar from 2pm by special request. We will also have the return of the Eat Your Words (again by special request) for those wanting a late night 'dance'. Personally, I will be looking to visit the Blues Bar where there are some fantastic bands, including The Grimms and 24 Pesos amongst others. By the way, if you fancy having a go at entertaining us, we have an open mic session on Saturday afternoon in the Blues Bar - with prizes would you believe?

Of course, we will have a range of bands playing in the Back Street Heroes main stage and the Riders' Rights Party tent. It's going to be a tricky one deciding whether to see Limehouse Lizzy or Exhibit A on Saturday night. Mr Hulse's Smacked Arse Comedy Show - one of our most popular features of all our events - starts at 1pm on Saturday to put a smile on your face and help you through your hangover from Friday night. Martin Mor - the 'knife man' comedian seen in our recent promo video - is headlining, so be careful not to sit too near the front unless you have a death wish.

We are very proud that this year's Farmyard will host Round 1 of the BSH Custom Bike Building Championship. There will be 5 additional prizes with winners going through to the Custom Xtreme stand at the NEC in November.

We will have a range of world food outlets within the main arena and also in each of the camping fields - don't forget we have a central marquee where you can sit and chat with your mates whilst eating. It's better than dropping half of your food on the floor... Alternatively, you can enjoy a sit down meal - with proper plates and cutlery - at our world famous cafe. Johnsons of Leeds will be there as usual along with a wide range of stalls and traders.

Full details of bands, comedians and all other special features below and on our website here.

I look forward to seeing you all on the 17th for this special rally - or the Thursday the 16th if you're looking to get away early to enjoy the rally. Our cut off dates for pre-booked tickets is the 12th of June for telephone and web bookings. Tickets will be available on the gate priced at £40.
