Newark Festival is back for its seventh year running, with another stellar-line up of stars, this year headlined by Marti Pellow, along with Kim Wilde, Go West, Nick Heyward, Limahl and The Fizz on Saturday 16 June 2018. This promises to be a brilliant evening of entertainment in the beautiful setting of Riverside Park, in view of Newark Castle, Newark.

The popular three-day festival includes not just the main Saturday night entertainment but also the return of the brilliant Riverside Rocks on Friday 15 June 2018; an electric evening of Rock, with some of the best tribute acts in the UK: Magic Queen, The Rollin’ Clones, The Ultimate Stone Roses, and Who’s Next.
