Posted on Posted in Dumball 2018

Go Loco in Acapulco for the Teenage Cancer Trust!

Dumball 2020 has been announced! The world’s premiere fancy dress banger rally is back. The 2020 event, which takes place 18th-27th January 2020 will be going beyond the wall…to Mexico! All to fund much needed support for teenagers with cancer.

Book your spot from 1st April, get yourself a return flight to Mexico City to be there for midday on Saturday 18th Jan… and we will do the rest.

Mexican Bug Lucky Dip!

In 2020 your entry fee covers the cost of your very own Mexican VW Beatle! You and your team mates will have half a day in Mexico City to decorate it, while the Marache band play… so start thinking of your fancy dress theme now!

On 19th January 2020 our cavalcade of madness will leave Mexico City: heading via jungle, mountains and the sandy Pacific coast…. to Acapulco. There we will go ‘loco’ before heading back to the southern edge of Mexico City where you can sell your car to a local, or make arrangements to ship it home :-).

  1. Good afternoon

    As usual you’ve surpassed yourselves with this trip, sounds and looks bloody amazing……😀😀😀 can you tell me when you release the tickets whether we have to pay in full or leave a deposit as I can’t remember from the goa trip

    Fank u

    1. Hello there. This year we are asking teams to pay in full, however you can use any form of payment – including PayPal or credit card, which will allow you to spread the payments.

      Thank you!

  2. Hi… Terribly interested here! Question… The section on what’s included in the price says “Half board and accommodation”. Is that because each member of the team pays half, or is each participant responsible for half of what it costs to have accommodations? If so, how much can each individual expect to pay for board/accommodations?

    1. Hi there Fernando…. accomodation is actually ‘bed and breakfast’ it is included in the price, from start to finish. in short, the price you see covers EVERYTHING you need apart from petrol, lunch, dinner (althogh dinner is provided at the parties in Mexico City and Acapulco).
