Dales Discovery Day
Would you like to be part of a special day to celebrate and promote all that's special about the Yorkshire Dales?
I'm creating a Dales Discovery Day on the 17th March (as part of English Tourism Week). The idea is to use this day to really raise the profile of our fantastic area, celebrate and share ideas for ways to enjoy it, predominantly through social media.
I only had this idea a couple of weeks ago so it's been a bit of a whirlwind and I really hope you can get involved! It's got the potential to benefit everyone in the Dales and kickstart the 2018 season.

Here's what we'll be doing:
In the week running up to 17th March:
We'll be sharing the image on the right (please download and use where-ever you want!) and building the buzz for Dales Discovery Day through PR and social media. Please like and share posts on
Facebook, twitter and all your other social media.
During this last week I'm finalising the 10 Free Discovery Treasure Maps, which we'll launch from www.DalesDIscoveries.com on 17th March. You'll then be welcome to link to these on your own website, download and print off, and use for your visitors. We'll be adding other locations over the summer and promoting these during the rest of the year.
I'm now also creating the list of 100 Different Ways to Discover the Dales. If you have any ideas you'd like me to include, please email asap.
On Dales Discovery Day - 17th March 2018:
Please facebook, instagram, tweet etc using the hashtag #DalesDiscoveries sharing your favourite places, things to do, ideas for activities, recommendations for places to eat, drink, shop, best views and all the other reasons why you love the Yorkshire Dales. Could we get #DalesDiscoveries trending?
Don't hold back - go overboard, and really show you care! You might want to pre-schedule some posts in advance. Please be generous and share others' posts as much as possible.
After Dales Discovery Day
I will be collating some of the ideas that came out during Dales Discovery Day to create a new Insider's Guide to the Yorkshire Dales which we'll then make available to everyone to distribute far and wide, share on social media and continue to promote the Yorkshire Dales over the Summer and Autumn.
