Old Dalby Day

Old Dalby Day takes place on the August Bank Holiday every year – and has done for over 30 years, providing a full day of family entertainment in a traditional village setting.

The day raises important funds for charities, support groups and local businesses in our community.

Events & Forms

The Classic & Vintage Vehicle Show

We usually have between 100 and 130 vehicles attending the show. Due to the size of the site we are unlikely to be able to accept any entries on the day of the show.

Vehicles previously entered have included vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, tractors, tricycles and prams.

Only vehicles registered prior to 1990 are eligible but “Interesting Vehicles” registered after 1990 may be accepted at the organisers discretion.
