New online National Park events listing

Grassington, 30 October, 2012.

Organisers of events in and around the Yorkshire Dales National Park will soon be able to promote them using a brand new, online service.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority has set up a special ‘what’s on’ section on its website to enable local organisations, clubs and individuals to advertise happenings and activities to a wider audience – and it is completely free.

The search facility for visitors to browse events online will go live in the New Year, but providers are being urged to register their event now at www.yorkshiredales.org.uk/add-an-event in time for possible inclusion in the Authority’s annual newspaper, The Visitor, which will be published in December.

Sarah Nicholson, the YDNPA’s Communications Officer and editor, said: “Our much-loved newspaper for visitors to the National Park carries a comprehensive, 12-page events diary each year.

“It has a massive 200,000 national circulation and is picked up by people both before they arrive in order to plan their trip and once they are on holiday in the area looking for great things to do.

“The new online calendar will be used to compile The Visitor 2013’s event pages as well as allowing organisers to publicise their event to more people than ever through our website and its links to key partner sites, such as the UK National Parks portal www.nationalparks.gov.uk and VisitEngland.

“You can add or amend your event online at any time throughout the year – but you need to submit details by 12th November if you want it to be considered for inclusion in the upcoming edition of The Visitor.

“We hope event providers will make full use of this new facility, which we think will also be a great tool to help to promote the National Park and wider area to visitors and generate much-needed income for its communities.”

The criteria for inclusion of events in both the online listing and The Visitor newspaper can be found on the web page.
