Newent Friday Market

Browsing a local market on a crisp and sunny winter’s morning can be a great start to your weekend. And down the Daffodil Line we are blessed with so many to choose from. 


Tied to the traditional end of Christmas festivities on Twelfth Night the Wassail has roots that almost certainly go back to pre-Christian times. And it’s still alive and well in the orchards along the Daffodil Line. So this year, why not see in the new year in unique and traditional fashion, and join the Wassail in Much Marcle.

Newent Lake Sculpture Trail

Did you know that whichever direction you are coming from the Daffodil Line gives you around an hour in Newent, before your return journey? Longer if you like of course, but an hour is the perfect time for a wander around the lake and a chance to admire the nature-inspired sculptures along the way.

What’s New? The Ark Cafe: Newent

Newent’s much-missed Good News Centre Cafe has reopened as the Ark Cafe with the same warm welcome, fabulous food and drink, and new children’s play areas indoors and out, including soft play and a sensory room.

And the Winner is . . . .

The annual Newent Art Competition, organised by Hannah Ferguson of the Secret Gallery, has been bringing together local artists and art lovers for eight years now. It’s a fabulous celebration of local creativity and colour and this year’s competition was one of the best.
