Over the course of the upcoming Nene Valley Festival, we will be using the blog to share all kinds of information with you; from highlighting key events and opportunities – to where to park and how to buy tickets!

We’ll also be providing a glimpse behind the scenes of the festival and a look at how the festival continues to grow year on year as we now approach our fourth year!

Firstly you can find us on all of the major social media platforms – including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr – so be sure to connect with us there.

Our festival maps and guides are currently available for you pick up across the county – everywhere from key locations like Stanwick Lakes and Rockingham Castle, to the libraries county wide and many more locations – keep an eye out for those when you are out and about.

And finally, we are pleased to say that the Nene Valley Festival Podcast will be returning this year, to give another preview of what is sure to be our biggest and best festival yet.
