As farming began to improve in the 1830s, Farmers’ Clubs, mainly for discussion and consideration of all new methods that were being brought forward, began to be formed up and down the country, as the Victorians were much given to improving themselves. It was in 1851 that the Driffield Farmers’ Club was formed and they held experiments with the new agricultural machinery on Mr Hopper’s farm at Kelleythorpe in 1852. In 1853 the Farmers’ Club developed into the Driffield and East Riding Agricultural Society, but when they invited subscriptions to run an Agricultural Show, they found the greatest indifference amongst the people of Driffield, and many refused to subscribe.
However, in 1854 the first Driffield Show was held.
