The organisers of the Driffield Show have announced that Phil Gibbons and his Ridgeside Lurchers will be performing within the Beverley Building Society sponsored Activity Arena at this year’s Show.

Cheryl Nicholson, Society Manager at the Showground said “it is always good to see sponsors returning to back to us year after year and the sponsorship that the Beverley Building Society provides us with ensures that we are able to continue to offer a packed timetable in the Activity Arena throughout the day”,

The Ridgeside Lurchers invite visitors to the Show to experience the full speed hunting abilities of the lurcher. Once in the Beverley Building Society Actvity Arena the lurchers will race, at full speed, chasting the electric lure offering a fast, action packed performance coupled with an informative, humourous commentary by Phil. The public will also have plenty of opportunities to get involved and win one of the coverted Beverley Building Society Show rosettes.

The Beverley Building Society is one of the oldest building societies in the UK and prides itself on being a strong independent mutual which offers straight forward products, competitive interest rates and an unrivalled level of personal service. Graham Carter, Head of Business Development at the Beverley Building Society said “As East Yorkshire’s only independent building society we are proud to be associated with such a well-established, local event. We look forward to seeing old and new acquaintances at our stand in Block U”.

As well as the lurcher racing the Beverley Building Society Activity Arena will also feature Birds of Prey Displays, Gun Dog Demonstrations and an opportunity to have a sneak preview of some of the Steam Engines appearing at the Showground later in August.
