Newark 2021

With the continuing uncertainty around the coronavirus pandemic, not yet knowing if restrictions such as social distancing and face coverings will be fully relaxed or removed by July, and the call to exercise a ‘heavy dose of caution’ we have reluctantly taken the decision once again to postpone this year’s Newark Traditions Festival.



The dates for next year’s festival will be announced as soon as they have been confirmed and we hope to arrange as much dancing as possible at Newark’s Christmas Markets and Winter Fair. We hope our regular dance sides and many more will be able to join us.



Newark’s Royal Market continues to be a great supporter of the festival and they will always welcome morris dancing, especially at their Saturday markets and monthly artisan, pre-loved and eco markets on the last Sunday of the month. Please get in touch if you want a day out dancing.
