Young Farmers dress up to the nineties

Young Farmers dress up to the nineties

It's not often that you would see Baywatch lifeguards, Pink Ladies and Teletubbies all in one place - except at a Young Farmers Annual Convention.

The second night of the Convention saw Young Farmers arrive by the bucket load in their 'Through the Decades' costumes, ready for another exciting evening at the Riviera Centre in Torquay, with DJ sets from Radio 1's Alice Levine and Aled Haydn Jones.

And the faces of Convention certainly dressed up appropriately for the occasion, with Cornwall YFC's Polly Chapman (pictured left) dressed as a flapper girl from the 1920s and Lincolnshire YFC's George Grant (pictured right) dressed in a 1960s hippy-style morphsuit.

Polly said: "All the girls from my club have come as flapper girls and the boys as 1920s gangsters. This weekend is amazing. I went to the darts this morning which was really entertaining. But the atmosphere is crazy. It's good to meet people from different counties and the locals have been so welcoming."

George said: "I usually wear a morphsuit for the fancy dress, but it's tie-dyed so it's more like a hippy morphsuit. The first time I came to Convention, I wore a morphsuit for the Where's Wally themed evening. The weekend has been amazing so far. I've just been all over Torquay today, it's been brilliant."
