  • A day of Yoga and relaxation – health and wellbeing day in the Yorkshire Dales to promote the beauty, peace, calm and tranquillity of the Dales.
  • Utilise local produce to its full extent for the week of the celebration, learn about the local produce and teach your staff so they all have the knowledge to talk to visitors about the products they are serving

Please remember visitors and people living in the area, are now looking for unique experiences, something that little bit different which they may not get the opportunity to do elsewhere. The choices and options for this festival are endless, it can be something small or something big, anything goes and we will be happy to promote your event for you under this established brand.

The promotion which we offer not only promotes your event, but it also promotes your business locally and nationally. We try and use as many different outlets as possible, and if you do create a unique event, you may be fortunate enough to be promoted in the national papers as well as the local news, or you may get a camera crew to your event - as we did with some of our dark skies events this year.

If you have any queries or would like to meet up for a chat, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to help in any way we can. If you have an idea which you want to progress with, I could put you in touch with the right person/business. 

Please do let us know if you are interested in taking part so we can begin to promote your event as soon as possible.

Kind regards
