A proposed itinerary has been drawn up for players, coaches, and supporters travelling with Newark Town to Belgium for the re-enactment of the First World War Christmas Truce football match between British and German soldiers.
IT SEEMS certain that Newark Festival will return in 2015. The feel-good factor with people having a good time and the community coming together, plus the all-round benefits brought by an influx of visitors to the town generated by this year’s event, were reasons enough for that to be the right decision.
The set-up is likely to be similar, with the town council contributing towards the cost and the Liz Hobbs Group being responsible for ticket sales.
It is conceded that lessons must be learned from this year’s event.
Complaints arising from The Human League concert on the Saturday night, including a lack of toilets and long bar queues, should be taken on board.
