Newton Town Show

Newton Town Show returns in 2023 with a packed line-up of family friendly fun.

The show is on at Mesnes Park, Newton-le-Willows, from 10am – 5pm on Saturday, 5 August, 2023, organised by Newton and Earlestown Community Group.

Expect live music, children’s entertainment, craft stalls, a food market, classic car show and more!

There’ll also be breathtaking shows in the main arena, including Savage Skills Stunt Team, Dangerous Steve and Alldays Farm.

Live music will come from acts including Batida Rio and St Helens Concert Band at the bandstand.

For children there’ll be lots of activities, a punch and judy show and a huge fairground.

Parking is limited, but some spaces will be available on the former St Aelred’s School site – postcode for sat nav: WA12 9GP. However, the show is always incredibly popular, so you’re advised to walk or get public transport if possible.

There’s more information on the Newton Town Show website.

Any proceeds from the Town Show go back to Newton and Earlestown Community Group, and are used to support the group’s work over the coming year.
