Now in its sixth year, Newark Festival is firmly established as a musical high on the Nottinghamshire entertainments calendar. This year, the three-day event kicks off on Friday 16 June and is a musical smorgasbord to suit all tastes. Whether you’re a mellow Red, Red Wine reggae fan or still remember Fleur East rock the X Factor with her Uptown Funk, this is the place for you.

Centrally located and easily accessible, Newark on Trent is perfect for a quick trip or if you are looking for somewhere to visit for a weekend away in June. The historic town’s Riverside Park will be transformed to give visitors the ultimate festival experience, with the stunning Newark Castle providing the perfect backdrop.

UB40 and Fleur are just two highlights of the festival’s full line up. If you are attending Friday or Saturday, you need to pre-book tickets, while Sunday is free entry to the Family Fun Day. More information and booking are available at
