Newark Creates Cultural Programme

Newark Creates is a three year cultural programme of events and activities for all ages which is being developed as part of Newark’s High Streets Heritage Action Zone.

The High Streets Heritage Action Zones scheme, backed by government funding, aims to help with the recovery of local high streets, from regenerating historic buildings to helping to engage local communities through art and cultural projects. The project will run from 2021 to 2024.

Historic England is leading the High Streets Cultural Programme in partnership with National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Arts Council England.

Newark Creates will be developed and led by Newark’s Cultural Consortium, which is made up of several local organisations including Inspire, Newark and Sherwood District Council, Newark Civic Trust, Newark Heritage Trust, Newark Book Festival, Newark and Sherwood CVS and Newark and Sherwood College (Schools of Violin, Piano and Woodwind).

The aim is to build a programme that will celebrate Newark’s heritage and community and help local organisations, communities and stakeholders to embed and sustain the benefit of the High Street Heritage Action Zone project in the future.
