We're pleased to announce that the torchlit march will return to the festival this year - join us as we reclaim the streets and walk in the footsteps of the Chartists on the anniversary of the Rising of 1839
 
What is Newport Rising?

Newport Rising is a festival to celebrate and remember the Chartist Uprising of 1839 (also known as the Newport Rising) which was the last large-scale armed rebellion against authority in Great Britain and an important milestone on the road to modern democracy.

The Chartists fought for the vote, for the right of the common people to have their voices heard. Join us this November and add your voice to the chorus.

Want to get involved? Volunteering Opportunities

Newport Rising is a grass roots festival and the first of its kind in Newport so we'll need torch bearers, agitators, recruiters, standard-bearers and peace keepers to help us make Newport Rising 2022 the best it can be. Just like the Chartists, we believe that great things are possible when we act together and we're grateful to all of our volunteers past and present for making the festival possible.
