New Newark town tours include translation by British Sign Language interpreter

Posted on: Friday, July 1, 2022

Crammed full of intriguing stories and sites of Anglo Saxon, Medieval, Georgian and Victorian Newark, Newark Through Time town tours run every two weeks from the National Civil War Centre, with prices starting from just £5.

The tour on Saturday 16 July will see a British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreter in attendance so that deaf or hard of hearing participants can enjoy discovering the town's fascinating history. A second signed tour will also be available on Saturday 17 September. 

Councillor Rhona Holloway, Portfolio Holder for Economic Development and Visitors, said:

“It’s great we have these accessible events taking place in Newark for everyone to enjoy.

“The tours will allow our community to learn more about the place they live and its history throughout the years as well as bringing more people into our wonderful town centre.”

For more information about the tours, including the ‘Besieged (but never beaten)’ tour which takes place on alternate weekends, or to book your place, please visit the National Civil War Centre website.
