Young farmers needed for Lord Mayor's Show 2018

10th Aug 2018 / By Georgina Crayford

The NFU is launching a competition to find eight young farmers who will land starring roles representing British farming in the 2018 Lord Mayor’s show and take the Back British Farming message to the streets of the City of London.

The 803rd parade takes place on Saturday 10 November and is featured in a live BBC broadcast.

As an additional prize this year, Massey Ferguson is inviting one of the young farmers on a special trip to Beauvais in Northern France as a guest to tour the factory and enjoy an overnight stay.

The NFU is asking for nominations for young farmers, aged 18-30, who have made an outstanding contribution to the farming sector and who are passionate about the industry. Please include as much information as possible on why you think your nominee deserves to represent British farming and the wider farming industry at this year’s Lord Mayor’s Show.

Nominations close on Sunday 19 August and a shortlist of finalists will be drawn up for 31 August by a panel of farming experts.

The nomination form can be found here.

  • To be considered, all farmer nominees must hold NFU membership. If you're not a member yet, you can join as a Student and Young Farmer for free. Nominees who have been nominated under the Back British Farming supporter category do not need to hold NFU membership.
