Newark & Nottinghamshire Showground, Lincoln Road, Newark, NG24 2NY

This is the 11th National Hamfest event run at this popular venue and every year the hall is packed with everything you need to set up and maintain an Amateur Radio Station. Whether your interest is: CW, SSB, Data modes, QRP or QRO, you will find it here.  If you’re interested in Ham Radio this is a must visit experience.

National Hamfest (Lincoln) Ltd is a  not for profit company that has been set up to manage the National Hamfest, and to co-ordinate the volunteer staffing provided by members of  Lincolnshire Radio Clubs. Any surplus from the event is shared between the Lincolnshire Radio Clubs whose members have worked hard to make the National Hamfest the largest amateur radio rally in the UK.


The Newark Showground have recently informed us that they have discontinued onsite camping. As a consequence, there will be NO visitor camping facilities this year.

Several recommended campsites are available and details are provided on our camping page
