Newark Showground Facilities
With 84 acres set inside a secure fence, the Newark Showground offers a perfect venue for all events. A further 60 acres are available for parking of traders, exhibitors and public as well as other uses including camping. The Showground is a flat site with 6 acres of buildings, 28 stables, 3 horse rings each with a collecting ring plus 3 warm up rings and a further 10 small animal rings.
The soil is a free-draining sand over gravel, which is serviceable when many other local and regional facilities have long closed. The newest pavilion, the George Stephenson Exhibition Hall was completed in April 2005. It has added a further 3000 sq m of covered exhibition space to the facilities already on offer.
Access can be from the A46, but the ideal approach is from the A17 which allows a longer build of traffic onto the 20 acre South-Eastern runway. The Newark Showground is only 1.5 miles from the A1 and offers many facilities.
