Newark Town Council is very disappointed that we have had to take the decision to cancel this year;s Newark Festival, however we are sure that everyone will appreciate that the health of the people who would attend it is of paramount importance at present, as the whole country fights this deadly virus.

The Town Council appreciates the importance of the Newark Festival for the local community and the wider benefits that it produces to the retail and hospitality businesses in the town.  It has therefore taken the decision to maintain its financial support for the festival in 2021 and hopes that it will survive and become a bigger and better event.
