The Retro Festival in Newark is a 2 day event, which this year was held from June 7th – 9th at the Newark Showground in Newark-on-Trent.
The event showcases products like wings, wheels, speed, steam, music, vintage retro, classic cars and motorbikes and much more in the consumer and carnivals industry.
Via Trident, we had the pleasure of welcoming 10 guests for an exciting day of music, food and for a variety of entertainments and so so much to see.
Following a show around, the group were shown that as well as the large areas (up to 3,000 delegates) there are also a plethora of small and medium sized rooms for events. In the afternoon, guests were free to tour the activities/stalls until we met again in the evening and watched a terrific evening entertainment show in the vintage marquee before dancing to live music until late into the night.
Although a very wet day, a comfortable night’s sleep was assured in one of the Glamping tents and the sun shone on the Sunday for another chance to look around the site and all of its entertainments.
