There’s Plenty Going On Around Our Daventry Branch This Weekend

Events 12-13 July 2024

If you’re coming to see us at our Daventry branch this weekend, you’ll be pleased to hear there’s plenty of other things going on in the area too.

With Welton Soapbox Derby, Crick Music Festival, and the very first Heart of the Shires Food Fest taking place, this weekend looks set to be event-packed! And the best thing? All of these events are around a five minute drive away from Venture Caravans & Motorhomes Daventry!

Equally, if you are attending any of these local events and are intrigued about any of the caravans, motorhomes or campervans we have to offer, you’re more than welcome to come and visit us. We would love to see you whilst you’re already on our doorstep.

So, what are each of these events about? Let’s take a look…

Welton Soapbox Derby

A free event taking place through the village of Welton, the Welton Soapbox Derby sees an array of amateur drivers racing their own homemade vehicular creations downhill. A non-motorised event, expect to see gravity and sheer courage play its part as participants sit behind the wheel of soapboxes ranging from traditional to completely outrageous.

Organised by a not for profit organisation, all funds raised by the event will be distributed to local charities.
