Old Dalby

Old Dalby is part of the parish of Old Dalby & Broughton and lies to the west of Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire close to the Nottinghamshire border.  It is quite a small village with around 1,430 people, including the settlement of Queensway, living in or around the village.

Old Dalby has a very active community with many groups such as netball, cricket, choir, church, toddlers, scouts and wine club. The WI was disbanded in 2018. The village also boasts the Old Dalby Singers who rehearse most Tuesdays throughout the year in the Village Hall. 

Our children are educated at the preschool and primary school.

We even have our very own Belvoir Brewery and The Crown Inn.

Each year the community gets together to put on OLD DALBY DAY, a traditional village fete on the August Bank Holiday Monday. This event has brought thousands of visitors to the village for over three decades who enjoy a varied and exiting array of entertainment and help raise funding for many of the groups mentioned above. In 2018 the car parking for the event was changed making it quite important to consult the website and/or FaceBook page for Old Dalby Day.
