Dubs In't Dales 2016 will be once again taking place at Camp Katur, Camphill estate, Bedale, North Yorkshire. from 23rd sept - 25th sept. Now in our 5th year the show is back bigger and better. Get the date on your calendar. Tickets on sale now!
Dubs in't Dales is a family friendly, relaxed show,
we have various fun activities taking place throughout saturday, with live music on both friday and saturday
night. we also hold a cruise on saturday evening,
usually about 2 hours taking in the local sites then
stopping for a photo opp and a quick visit to
a local pub. The show and shine takes place on sunday morning.
in 2012 we decided to stop talking about holding a show and actually do it. The first show took place in June 0f 2012 at Pateley Bridge Show Ground. The event was a great success.
After the success of the first Dubs In't Dales show we were back the next year, this time the show took place in sept and we moved the location to Camp Katur in Bedale. It was another great success with more visitors, campers and traders than the first year.
in 2014 we once again held the show in sept at Camp Katur in Bedale. noticeably bigger and busier than previous years, whilst maintaining our family friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
The 2015 Dubs In't Dales was another great success, we all had a fantastic weekend and from what we've heard so did all of you. Bring on the next one.
Planning and Organising Dubs Int' Dales 2016 is in full swing and we expect to keep growing and improving in any areas we can. We cant wait to see you all there for another cracking weekend! book early to avoid disapointment.
