Drive-in festival in nearby Newark to host 10 nights of live music
A unique drive-in festival is heading to Newark Showground, presented by Nightflix Drive-in Cinema, the UK’s largest drive-in cinema operator.
Nightflix has announced it is coming to Newark, kicking off with a 10-night drive-in music festival, hosting a range of the UK’s best tribute acts.
Guests will enjoy a festival atmosphere and street food takeaway offers, all to be enjoyed from the comfort and safety of attendees’ vehicles, with superb in-car sound.
The UK’s first drive-in festival consists of live tribute acts on a huge festival stage, recreating performances of Take That, Elton John, Billy Joel, Abba, The Killers and Elvis, along with some jaw-dropping light displays.
Steve Marson, from the Nightflix team, said: “We are delighted to be in a position where we can offer a safe form of entertainment to the public whilst practicing social distancing.
“The safety of our visitors and event crew is essential to us, we are putting procedures in place following Government advice to make sure all our staff are wearing the correct PPE and that guests stay within their vehicles as much as possible. Any physical movement around the site must comply with the 2m social distancing guidelines.’’
The cinema enthusiasts will also be hosting regular drive-in cinema events in Newark from July 17, showing new release films, and plan to stay in Newark for some time.
Steve added: “We are super excited to give Newark and the surrounding areas something new to enjoy, not only at a time where social distancing has taken over our lives but also for future events. Drive-in cinemas have been popping up all over the world over the last few months and the Nightflix outfit is one of only a few drive-ins that currently operates in the UK.”
Newark Showground’s sales and marketing manager Paul Sparks added: “Nightflix’s Drive-In plans for the coming months bring unique opportunities for people in and around Newark to enjoy high quality entertainment in a safe – and quite special – environment.
“We can’t wait to see their programme unfold.”
