Welcome to Wonderland – Newark Castle

Welcome to our Book Festival Wonderland. We are delighted to finally be back in the castle grounds and we cannot wait for you to delve into all of the wonderful activities and storytelling that awaits you in our Wonderland. Discover the joy of making, and develop your creativity and scientific thinking with Mr Shaha’s Marvellous Machines. Take part in our craft zone with the team from Newark and Sherwood Play Support Group and sign up to the Summer Reading Challenge as we make, play and create all things around Wild World Heroes. From stalls to street theatre, have fun exploring!

Please check our website and social media along with the venue website for any safety updates and requirements for the day ahead. Remember to adhere to any government guidelines that may be in place at the time. Have fun but remember, if somewhere is busy, why not try one of the other activities or visit the stalls in the Market Place, have a go at our town Family Trail or take a break in one of the wonderful cafes. The castle is open all day so you have plenty of time.
