Fancy Dress revealed for Annual Convention 2015
Celebrate your fave fashion period at Annual Convention 2015 now that members have voted for the theme 'Through the Decades' for the fancy dress on Saturday night!
Hundreds of members voted for the theme in NFYFC’s online poll and Through the Decades beat Famous Families and Through the Generations.
The result means Torquay needs to prepare itself for Young Farmers dressed in 70s’ bell bottoms, shoulder pads from the 80s and perhaps some Spice Girl attire from the 90s.
The result of the poll was revealed at NFYFC’s Council meeting in Coventry by David Maidment, Chairman of the Events and Marketing Steering Group.
Members took to Twitter to ’tweet’ their approval, including this message from Laura Howell from Swansea. @Laurahowell_15: “Yesssssss!!!!!! So excited secret fancy dress project can start as of today!!!”
As well as the fancy dress theme, the Events and Marketing group also announced there would be a foam party on the Sunday evening and a dedicated Convention App for the 2015 event that would be available to download in advance.
Planning is well underway for the three days in Torquay next April and the Agriculture and Rural Issues (AGRI) Steering Group have also started planning the AGRI Forum. Following feedback from the 2014 Forum, next year’s event will be held on the Saturday afternoon of Convention – instead of the morning – in a bid to attract more people. The event will be titled ‘What’s your future in farming?’
Locations and dates for Convention from 2016 to 2018 were also announced at the meeting so get these logged in your diaries now:
2016: Blackpool, 6-8 May
2017: Torquay. 21-23 April
