Hundreds of young farmers enjoyed a boozy night out and revelled with hen parties in Blackpool last night, as part of an unofficial convention that has drawn criticism for ‘appalling’ behaviour in recent years.
The so-called ‘DIY AGM’ was organised by the Young Farmers Community to ‘provide an unrivalled social occasion for young farmers to let off steam’, according to the organisation’s website.
Young men were seen donning pink cowboy hats, carrying women on their backs and enjoying themselves en masse in the streets of Blackpool, as they waited to enter nightclubs and bars.

The event was held despite criticism over the behaviour of young farmers at an organised event in Blackpool three years ago
For others however events turned less friendly, with some young men seen being attended to by emergency services after sustaining injuries during the alcohol-fuelled night out.
Once held as part of the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs, the event was scrubbed from the official calendar after attendees in recent years were slammed for their public behaviour.
In 2019, young revellers were snapped stumbling through the streets, scoffing pizza on shop counters, flashing offensive T-shirt slogans and getting carried across roads.
In a night of overindulgence, young woman were seen slouched against store-fronts and being carried away by emergency services as men donned clothes reading, ‘If we hook up quicker, I’ll c** quicker than Brexit’ and ‘Please me, Tease me, Don’t disease me’.
Young men cheered as they made their way along the main thoroughfare and enjoyed a night out in Blackpool’s town centre

According to a statement on the Young Farmers Community website, the organisation was created in 2018 ‘following the tragic end to the annual convention which for years was tremendously organised by the National Federation of young Farmers.
‘The aim of the Young Farmers Community is to uphold the reputation of young farmers, raise money for charities and provide an unrivalled social occasion for young farmers to let off steam, for years to come.’
It added that 3,500 young farmers attended the DIY AGM in 2019, raising more than £7,500 for charity.
