what our customers say

Francesca Broom (Knowledge Exchange Manager), British Beet Research Organisation
"The Lady Eastwood Centre was the perfect venue to host our conference.  The team really looked after us, and made the whole thing from booking to exit a pleasure.  We look forward to returning to Newark Showground in future."
Guy Robinson (CEO), Coalition Presents
"The Newark Showground team are some of the best we've worked with, during our drive-in tours while most of the UK's entertainment industry was shut down. The team are supportive, professional and competitive on fees. They really couldn't have done much more to help us. We look forward to working with them on much bigger shows in the future. "
David Hopkins (Vice President), AEC Society Ltd.
"I wanted to give a massive thank you to Newark Showground for making our rally a landmark event for me! The whole experience was so enjoyable and all staff were so hard working and had great communication."
Sue Nattrass (Economic Growth Officer), Newark and Sherwood District Council
"Thank you to Newark Showground for your patience and superb organisation of the Economic Growth Conference. The verbal feedback we received was excellent. "
