An Update On Ellis Mather Presents Newark Festival

To all our festival family,

After long discussions and difficult decisions, it is with great sadness to announce the postponement of Ellis Mather Group Presents Newark Festival 2020.

Our parent company Ellis Mather Group have been working closely with Liz Hobbs Group to bring a special event every year, and Ellis Mather Presents Newark Festival has always been about the community of Newark and bringing us together in an event that is full of fun and unity for all, but most importantly in a safe environment. Discussions were held at length and we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation as closely as possible to see if there were changes that could mean we could go ahead, and we appreciate the patience from everybody during this, but due to COVID-19 restrictions and the safety for all concerned, this year’s festival unfortunately has been postponed.

As we are sure you all were, we were also very excited for this year’s festival and that it was to be the best festival yet, but we hope you can understand why we cannot go ahead.

Despite the sad news of this year’s postponement, Ellis Mather Presents Newark Festival will be back next year on the same weekend of August 27-28, 2021 – so save the date as it is going to be an amazing weekend of fun, music and celebration!

“The most important thing about Ellis Mather Presents Newark Festival is our community, and it is with our community’s safety and wellness in which is of paramount importance to us. Unfortunately, we cannot bring a great festival to you all this year, but we will be back bigger and better next year. We hope everyone is keeping safe and well, and we cannot wait to bring you an unforgettable experience in 2021.”
