This year we are raising money for Let's Get Ellis Active and Fight For Charlie.


At the 2017 event we raised a fantastic £11,450 for our chosen charities, in 2018 Detectival raised an amazing £13,736! This year we are hoping to raise even more for our two chosen good causes.

Please help raise funds for these two causes by purchasing raffle tickets at the event, riding our rodeo bull and putting any loose change in our collection buckets!

The Rally Site Update

The Detectival 2019 site is almost ready for our visit, with only 2 fields left to cut out of the 30+ fields we have for you this year!

27 of the fields are new and undetected, many of which have now been harvested, cultivated, and are ready for us to explore!
