Announcing the Newtown Festival Performance Programme

Newtown Festival hits the streets yet again and we welcome one and all to join the party on Sunday 7 March 2021. Our last festival was just before the first nationwide lockdowns and we are fortunate to come back again to mark the end of summer. We would like to acknowledge and congratulate our programmers for always lovingly curating such a great lineup of locals as well as favourites coming from further afield. And, a huge welcome to the many many talented artists bringing the energy to Newtown. With over 150 performances across 15 stages, and taking up space along Riddiford and its side streets, we present our performance programme. Enjoy!
