Newark Showground’s strong start to 2023 has included its busiest March on record. Highlights from the 2023 calendar so far include the Midlands Woodworking and Power Tools Exhibition, National Shire Horse Show, a weekend of table-top gaming, and a classic motorbike show.
Meetings, conferences, and corporate events are also on an upward trend, accounting for over a third of events taking place this quarter. Highlights
have been a two-week dealer training residency for a leading agricultural machinery brand and a Fork-Lift Driver of the Year competition for a national logistics company.
The huge range of events reflects the range of flexible venues across its multi- purpose 84-acre campus and the high levels of service delivered by its dedicated event delivery team. The site is well-known for hosting Europe’s largest antiques fairs, B2B exhibitions, and consumer and special interest shows, all of which benefit from the unique combination of indoor and outdoor spaces.
Further evidence of the site – and team’s – versatility, is the strength of its in- house catering. As well as providing event catering for thousands of visitors across seven satellite outlets, it has also hosted
a sell-out boxing promotion, numerous dinners and celebrations, and a ball for a thousand revellers this year.
