FRI 9TH - SUN 11TH SEPT 2016


The weekend of Newark Blues Festival 2016 will see a wide variety of live blues music hosted in venues around Newark on Trent.


Find out more about the Kevin Thorpe Main Stage and other venues below.


For the 2016 festival, we are delighted to confirm that The August James Blues Band will once again be performing under the bandstand in Newark Castle Gardens during our Blues at the Castle event. This will help to keep the live music going during main stage changeovers and, with a little luck, may feature a few guest appearances throughout the night.
