Summer Sessions at The Riverfront     

Summer Sessions at The Riverfront The Riverfront Summer Sessions will launch this month on Friday June 26 at 5pm. It will be a chilled out evening of performance and boutique market stalls with a micro-festival vibe and the first event will be completely free as part of The Riverfront’s Open Weekend.

Stalls will be running from 5pm until 11pm in the foyer, so start saving your pennies as you will be treated to everything from vintage-inspired ceramics to fair trade scarves, vinyl, arts and crafts and hand-made fashion, jewellery and accessories. This will be the biggest boutique shopping experience Newport has ever seen!

The Open Mic part of the night will begin at 7pm and will be hosted by local musician and performer, Jon Lilygreen out on the café terrace. Attenders can relax with a drink whilst being entertained by an array of local performers.

If you’d like to be involved with Summer Sessions, The Riverfront would love to hear from any of you creative people out there, from fashion designers and vintage fashionistas to arts and crafts makers and even those selling something a little bit out of the ordinary.

The Riverfront is encouraging all types of performers to go along, from comedians and beat poets, to musicians and story tellers. Please contact Rachel Kinchin, Marketing Officer on for more information, visit the website or the Facebook Group at
