The Trentfest Story

Trentfest began as a celebration of Trent Valley DA's birthday - originally an idea for a 'one-off' concert for our celebrations. It soon became apparent that people wanted us to run it again - and it has grown year on year into the event that it is today! Trentfest has now become one of the biggest outdoor music rallies (if not the biggest!) held by any DA in the Central Counties Region and beyond. Our committee works hard each year to grow the event to bring you bigger and better entertainment and traders. Many people say that this event has become the highlight of their camping year!

This will be held on 13/16 June 2024, on the events field of Thoresby Hall Estate, off Netherfield Lane, near Ollerton, Nottinghamshire NG22 9EP.
