Newark Showground offers adaptable space for B2B, consumer and private events in 11 halls on a secure, flat, well-maintained 128 acre site.
Ideally situated in the East Midlands with excellent transport links, Newark Showground hosts 500 events annually, including trade exhibitions, specialist shows, meetings, seminars, training courses, product launches and business awards. At 3,000sqm, the George Stephenson Hall alone is one of the region's largest purpose-built exhibition venues.
Numerous organisers book the entire site, using all 14,000sqm of indoor space and fenced 84 acre showground site. We work closely with organisers, providing advice, support and essential services.
Located on free-draining land with 5kms of internal roads, there is free parking for 4,000 cars on hard-standing and space for 3,000 more. Floodlighting, eight toilet blocks, showers, electricity points and mains water supply throughout the site make it popular for motorhome and caravan rallies, camping events and music festivals. Wi-fi access is also available.
Our in-house catering team, Tastes, provides dining for 10 to 1,000 guests, hosting charity balls, dinner dances, Christmas parties and wedding receptions. Tastes also runs restaurants, bars and snack outlets in the main halls and outdoor mobile catering for up to 10,000 visitors.
Newark Showground is next to the A1/A46/A17 road junction, just over an hour by train to London and close to Nottingham and Lincoln. East Midlands and Doncaster airports are 45 minutes away and we offer VIP landing for helicopters.
