Heard of the dumball?

it's a fancy dress festival on wheels...

Sahara here we come

There are three simple rules...

1) your car is worth less than £400

2) you raise a grand for the TCT

3) you look ridiculous all week

We Organise Everything...

Just rock up and drive!

Celebrate your inner idiot

for a great cause


Welcome to the home of the dumball: the pan European fancy dress festival on wheels. We raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust by pimping up cars that have seen better days, and driving them for thousands of miles.

You’ll find that the dumball is very different to other so-called charity rallies. The dumball is a test of endurance. Never mind a weekend driving over the Alps, we conquer the whole of Europe, in a week.

the cause

Since 2007 the dumball has raised over £250,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust so that they can build a state-of-the-art unit at a recognised centre of excellence, The Royal Marsden Hospital. It will care for teenagers and young people with cancer. The unit will cost over £3 million all together, so help us do our bit! Want some inspiration, check out the story of legendary dumballer Adam Horn...


Remember, the dumball is not a race. There are no prizes for first place. We stick together in convoys, give you radios so you can banter en route, and wherever we stop, the party starts.

We are doing something stupid to raise money for a very serious cause, so join us on our next inadvisable mission, you never know, you might just have the best week of your life.


dumball: moroc ‘n’ roll is going to be the biggest and boldest rally yet, as we take 50 bangers all the way to Africa, stopping in Fes, Marrakech and camping in the desert, before heading back to the comfort of Southern Spain, finishing in the resort of Malaga. All bets are off…



Dumbfest is a music and comedy festival which was originally started as a fundraiser for the dumball.
