A COUNTRY & WESTERN SPECTACULAR!
DAY VISITORS | £5 in advance, £7 on the gate
Come and join the fun at Newark Showground on the weekend of September 2-3 as we enjoy the UK Autumn Motorhome & Caravan Show!
Hundreds of traders and dealers will be showcasing a range of motorhomes, caravans and camper vans – along with accessories and consumables – with thousands coming in search of the great deals and bargains on offer.
There are several catering options, including hot meals in the venue’s excellent restaurants, and a picnic area with kids’ entertainment and live music. Car parking at the showground is FREE, and dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads at all times.
FOR CAMPERS | £45 in advance, £55 on the gate
New for 2017, campers can arrive on-site from Thursday evening and stay right through until Monday morning – that’s four nights for as little as £45. And that’s just the start, with two nights of superb live music and comedy (Friday and Saturday) along with other added extras such as a hog roast on Thursday night and a quiz on Sunday… all part of the package.
During Friday daytime a special coach trip into the heart of historic Lincoln will be running for just £5 per person with a choice of two departure times – 10am-4pm or 12pm-6pm – with excursions into Newark available on Sunday.
At the show itself, campers can enjoy all the same benefits as day visitors, plus there will be exclusive entertainment and activities including free-to-play cash-prize bingo and dance lessons.
Pitches are available for tents, caravans or motorhomes of all sizes, including American RVs. Accessible areas are available too, and all camping plots are suitable for individuals and small groups. Friendly and experienced event staff will be on hand when you arrive to escort you to your pitch.

We’re going full-on Country & Western at our Autumn weekend for an end-of-season hoedown in the Cedric Ford Pavilion! Ron and Shelia from the British Western Dance Association will be hosting several superb country acts, as well as getting you up on your feet with a line dance disco. They will also be running daytime workshops for campers so you can learn all the moves! Here are all the details…
Friday, September 1 | Chris Mezza
Chris’s country career stared way back in 1980 when he began performing with local bands. He then formed a country music duo called Eastbound – sharing lead vocals and playing bass guitar – touring extensively in the UK and Scandinavia. His line dance programme is as good as any on the circuit and his stage presence and personality will make him a sure-fire hit with our Newark crowd.
Friday, September 1 | MT Allan
Malc Allan is country and western through and through having been wowing crowds for more than 30 years! In recent times he has formed the MT Allan Duo – winning the country music duo of the year award in 2008 – and he is the current chairman of the British Country Music Awards and the British Country Music Hall of Fame.
Friday, September 1 | The Country Chix
The Country Chix is a high-energy trio of female country and western performers that will definitely get you itching to show off your dancing skills! Not only do they rock a pair of denim shorts and a cowboy hat, they can recreate and pay tribute to the great and good of country. Their live performance is made extra-special with the use of a banjo and a fiddle… it doesn’t get more country than that! Classics such as Jolene and Stand By Your Man are performed with pure western sass, but it’s not just Dolly who gets a look in as the Chix pay tribute to Johnny Cash with covers of Walk The Line and Ring Of Fire. You’ve never heard Sweet Child O Mine sung quite like Country Chix do it…
Saturday, September 2 | Trey Jackson
Country artist Trey performs week in, week out up and down the UK and has received several awards and nominations for his truly excellent repertoire of original material. He’ll be performing his favourite hits, including those from his two albums: Newcastle to Nashville and My Father’s Son.
Saturday, September 2 | Curtis & Lee
Hot damn! Curtis & Lee is a classy country music line dance show that’s easy on the eyes and on the ears. Their extensive set list is complemented by soaring harmonies and an electric on-stage chemistry that has seen them compared to the likes of Johnny Cash and June Carter.
Saturday, September 2 | Kennedy Catlin
Dolly Parton is one of Kennedy Catlin’s favourite country singers, so it’s a pleasure for her to be able to pay tribute to a musical icon. She has been performing for more than a decade now, and in 2015 appeared as Dolly on Stars In Their Eyes and was the lead girl in the world premier Elvis musical If I Can Dream at the Lowry Salford Quays. If you want to sing along to all your favourite Dolly hits and enjoy an authentic night with the Queen of Country music then this is where you need to be!
