Driffield Drive-in Firework Spectacular is a Covid Secure event, taking place at Driffield Showground on 12th December 2020 – we have an incredible event lined up for your family!

An unforgettable evening in a safe, COVID secure environment. A Drive through Santa’s Grotto, Live radio entertainment, competitions and giveaways, quality catering available to reserve in advance and AN OUTSTANDING Professional Firework Display accompanied by Christmas Tunes with an exciting introduction to rarely seen before European fireworks – among the best in the world!  With live Festive Singalong from our very own Santa Claus!  Sing and Dance by the side of your car and enjoy the spirit of Christmas!  But children don’t forget to post your list for Santa in his very own post box!

The 2020 event has been designed around the new COVID-19 guidelines. As our Local Events Centre Driffield Showground ticked all the boxes for our Display Location.  Being easily accessible via the A167 leading from Beverley, Hull, Bridlington, Scarborough and York as well as all surrounding villages it was ideally situated for vehicles attending the display.  The large site offers level, well drained ground with an uninterrupted view of the Firing Area from your parked car.  We have ample space to safely park vehicles within current Covid-19 Guidelines to ensure confidence in those attending the event.

We have worked alongside Driffield Showground for many years, this year has been very challenging for them, as it has for many, therefore it was very important for us and our traders who are all Driffield based that we could support the Showground at this time.

On the evening, guests will enter the showground by the entrance adjacent to Driffield Rugby Club. From there, the cars will follow a pre-defined route around the main showground.

Santa’s Grotto and Sing-along

After entering the event grounds, visitors will have the opportunity to drive through our very own Santa’s Grotto. Children will receive a goody bag from Santa’s helpers, and there might be a little treat for the Adults too!  Wave and call to Santa and post your letters in his very own post box for Christmas Eve!  Then just before the fireworks start Santa will be entertaining everyone live on the radio with his very own favourite festive singalong!  Join in with singing and dancing at the side of your car before Santa gives the countdown to start the displays!
