A chance to win tickets to Newark 2013! more...
After a cold gloomy winter we are really looking forward to Newark 2013. This year we are celebrating the 30th show to be held here on the Newark Showground. Many things have changed since that first show and it seemed right to stand back as it were and take a new look at the show, to give it a 'make over' for the future. We have changed the layout of the showground to complete our earlier attempts to centralise the show more around the main Exhibition Hall, which we began using in 2005.
The show now radiates out from the spacious and well lit George Stephenson main hall. Inside, there will be a great variety of the latest vehicles on display from the leading Kit Car manufacturers. The National Kit Car Festival is also supported by the Kit Car industry's magazines. Alongside the car displays will be the recognised names in parts and accessories.
As always we get amazing support from the Kit Car Clubs. Their members have a vast variety of vehicles to show, both models that are in production and models from earlier eras and even one off specials. If you are looking for advice on building and running a kit car, who better to chat to than an owner, they have a wealth of knowledge and many a great story.
As you take in the show you may see The (UK Garrison) Stig enjoying the cars. If you are looking to buy a pre-owned Kit Car then have a browse round the Cars For Sale area. Every year we are joined by a great variety of Classic, Custom and American cars on the showground.
The Country Craft Fair can be found in the hall next to the public entrance and they are joined by the fascinating model engineering and Meccano displays for 2013. The miniature steam engines and stationary engines can be found adjacent to the Public Entrance.
The festival is both an indoor and outdoor show. The showground is on flat, well drained land and benefits from a network of well kept roadways. Public car parking is on hard standing.
On Saturday evening there will be a Licensed Bar and Disco in the Cedric Ford Pavilion.
So come along and join in, why not make a weekend of it?
If you are coming to the show to see any particular exhibitor please check with that exhibitor to make sure that they will be at the show.
We look forward to seeing you at the show on the 15th and 16th June!
