With 11 flexible conference, exhibition and hospitality Venues offering 14,000sqm of indoor space on our well-organised 84-acre campus, Newark Showground’s choice of flexible Venues works for a range of indoor and outdoor Events, from business meetings and conferences to outdoor exhibitions.

A further 60 acres of former runways provides 8,000 free visitor parking spaces or can be hired for Events in their own right. Camping and caravanning are often provided and managed by individual Event organisers, with on-site services and facilities available for a comfortable stay.

Our flat site is divided into discrete zones and has four horse rings with collecting rings, three warm-up rings and several small animal rings. With free-draining sandy soil over gravel, the grounds remain serviceable when many other venues can struggle because of extremely wet weather.

There is also site-wide Wi-fi, CCTV, street lighting and floodlights around most of the site, including on the runway parking areas.

Our in-house Catering ‘Tastes’ and the Catering Team will create mouth-watering meals for your Event with produce sourced locally. Please enquiry for more information regarding what Tastes can offer.
