As many will already know, the Bath & West Showground hosted New Wine’s summer festival for 29 years from 1989 until 2018. The New Wine Leadership has decided to return to the Bath & West Showground after being away for several years.

“We are very excited to welcome back New Wine, particularly on such a momentous occasion” says Charly Andrews, Head of Commercial Sales at the Royal Bath & West Society. “Here at the Bath & West Showground, we pride ourselves on being a versatile venue and are pleased that we have been able to accommodate for the return of such a popular event. We look forward to what we hope will be a long-lasting and positive future with the New Wine Team”.

New Wine is a spirit-empowered movement with a vision to equip the local church to release spirit-filled followers of Jesus. New Wine will be hosting its annual summer festival, which is a six-day gathering of Christians from all around the UK and beyond, including New Wine Kids, Luminosity, Young Adults Collective and more.

Rich Johnson, New Wine England’s National Leader, says, The Bath & West Showground has played a key part in New Wine’s history, and we’re delighted to be heading back in 2024. We’re thankful to the team at the Bath & West Showground for their support and warm welcome back.
