A warm welcome awaits you at events throughout the area. You will be amazed at the huge variety of things happening; there really is something for everyone. Cultural events such as the Newbury International Spring Festival and Comedy Festival provide rich entertainment. A volley of shots, battle cries and an authentic atmosphere are to be found at the Battle Proms concert at Highclere and the Sealed Knot at Shaw House.
