After a lot of thought and very careful consideration by members of the NBF committee, it has been decided that Newark Blues Festival will not be taking place for the foreseeable future.
Considering the popularity of previous festivals, this decision has not been taken lightly. It has been reached as a result of a number of factors, financial, personal and logistical, that mean we are no longer able to stage an event of the standard that everyone has become accustomed to.
Newark Blues Festival was a not-for-profit event, organised completely by unpaid volunteers, with costs underwritten by private individuals. Unfortunately, other commitments mean that the resources required to organise and stage a high-quality festival are no longer available.
Many thanks for your support over previous years and please continue to support the numerous live music venues around Newark that have been such an integral part of Newark Blues Festival.
