What is on in Newark currently?

That we are hopefully get back to some sort of normal now let us see what is on in Newark.

Many venues have opened but do not offer anywhere near a full experience as they have done in the past. Those that are open rightfully insist you wear a face covering, observe social distancing rules and use anti-bacterial wipes and gels on a regular basis.

Here is a list of key sights in Newark and how they are affected:

Newark Showground
