With 28 musical events in five days and a host of wonderful exhibitions, including the excellent Southwell Artists Open Studios, there is only one place to spend August Bank Holiday – in Southwell enjoying our own top quality classical music festival.

Details have been revealed of thrilling events to mark the 370th anniversary of the dramatic fall of Newark, during the British Civil Wars. The capitulation on 8th May 1646 on the orders of the ill-fated King Charles I brought to a close the first phase of the brutal conflict between Crown and Parliament.

The Flood Forum's work on the Community Resilience and Emergency Plan with Southwell Town Council has highlighted that we need to build our resilience and know what to do in an emergency.

Southwell First responders would like to thank Southwell Lions on behalf of the local community for their kind donation of a defibrillator that has been installed outside the main entrance of The Minster School.

LIVE MUSIC, treasure trails, extreme sports, interactive workshops and plenty of great British food will be on offer for families this May at Nottinghamshire County Show.
The much loved show returns for its 133rd year at Newark Showground on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th May and the organisers of the show are inviting families to pre-book tickets to the popular annual event and prepare for a fun-filled weekend.
