DadFest – the ‘best small event in the UK’

The only festival in the country just for dads and children. DadFest is also home to the Official World Dad Dancing Championships, featured on BBC The One Show in January 2018, as well as 5Live, Channel 5, BBC Spotlight and many other media outlets.

DadFest was awarded ‘Best Small Event’ in the UK in 2015. The Award judges said: ‘This is an event that understands it community and speaks to it. It has a clear vision, is innovative in doing so and reflects part of its society in its representation. How you can go wrong with dad dancing?’
