Martin Kemp to headline Nottinghamshire summer Boho Festival

Eighties and nineties stars are set to headline the county’s newest family-friendly festival.

Martin Kemp from Spandau Ballet, Ben Volpierre-Pierrot from Curiosity Killed the Cat and DJ Jeremy Healy have been announced for this year’s Boho Festival.

The three-day festival will be held from July 26 to July 28 at Millview Glamping and Events, Newton, nestled in the heart of the countryside.

Featured acts include tribute bands Blondied, UK Fleetwood Mac, Le Freak Chic and Nile Rogers Tribute, plus the Winachi Tribe, Fat Digester, the Disco Yurt, kids’ entertainment and arts and crafts, stalls, street food, workshops and classes.

Founded in 2023 by the Perkins family, who were behind the award-winning Nottinghamshire restaurant Tom Brown’s Brasserie at Gunthorpe for more than 30 years and now run Bohemian Events, Boho Festival offers day and weekend tickets and luxury bell tent hire or general camping tickets.

Robin Perkins said: “We’re so excited about the festival this year. It promises to be even bigger and better than last year. We have worked hard to make Boho Festival an intimate gathering of all ages to enjoy live music, DJs and entertainment in a beautiful woodland settling. Tickets are selling quickly, and we can’t wait to welcome the festival goers.”

The 16-acre Millview site is located on former RAF Newton land used to park bomber aircraft. The site was opened in 2021 by Tom Fisher, whose family has farmed in Newton for many years.

Tom Fisher added: “We are delighted to host Boho Festival again. I grew up in the 90s and to host big names such as Jeremy Healy and Martin Kemp is fantastic for us. It’s such a great event for locals and visitors to get together and have a good time in our beautiful Trent Valley surroundings.”
