Costume Ball

The 2018 Costume Ball will be on Saturday April 21st 2018. Please contact the secretary to reserve a ticket and arrange payment in advance.

Following the positive feedback we received in previouse years, we will serve light refreshments during the mid-evening break. Soft drinks will be available. There are several excellent restaurants in the town for pre-dance meals.

As usual, the venue will be the Georgian Ballroom in Newark Town Hall.

The setting could not be more appropriate as the building was constructed in the mid 1770's and restored as near to its original condition as possible in 1989-90. The ceiling and fireplaces were inspired by Robert Adam and there are borders in Wedgwood style. The fireplace surrounds are in Italian marble.

The address is:
Newark Town Hall
Market Place
NG24 1DU

There is access via the Market place (via Kirkgate) for loading and unloading.
Parking is available at London Road Car Park, Appletongate Car Park and other locations. Charges apply every day.


There will be a one-way system around Newark town centre to accommodate works for a major sewer upgrade.

Tickets for members £16.00 and non-members £17.00 are available now
Contact the secretary to purchase your ticket. There will be no tickets available at the door in order to ensure adequate catering.
