Gloworm Festival

16th - 18th August 2024

Location: Thoresby Park, Netherfield Lane, Newark NG22 9EP


The family orientated Gloworm Festival began very successfully in 2015. It provides a festival full of great music and children’s entertainment, workshops and activites.

There will be literary performances, and a whole host of popular children’s TV favourites.

Family Friendly Fun

What makes this family friendly festival that little bit more wonderful is that once you have a ticket there are no hidden costs, apart from the obvious food, drinks, market stalls etc. The rides are free, the workshops are free, and the activities are all free once you are in.

There are a host of activities, games and workshops along with a miniature petting farm. You can be sure that your day will be jammed packed of fun and entertainment at this unique family festival!

Festival Fundraising

Not only is the festival going to be superbly magical, but they are also helping to raise money for a local Nottinghamshire charity.

The School For Parents is a school like no other. Their mission is to improve the lives of disabled children and their families through providing educational, welfare and health services. They help and support families who have children with a wide range of disabilities such as Cerebral palsy, motor disorders, head injuries, genetic disorders such as Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy and many many others.
