Having been part of the community for hundreds of years, Tallents is always delighted when it can forge closer links with the people and places where its offices are based. Here are some of our most recent activities.

Newark and District Schools Chess League

Tallents is proud to have sponsored the Newark and District Schools Chess League since it started in 2008. The sponsorship allows the League to provide three free coaching sessions for the League members each year and also to give the children who participate medals and trophies.

The League currently comprises 18 teams of four children from primary schools across Newark and the surrounding area. Boys and girls of any age and from any local primary school are invited to join the League, no matter what level chess they play at. The school doesn’t have to have a chess club in order to participate, just four children and an interested adult or teacher.

If your child or school would like to take part in the League, please contact Graham Ladds on 01636 821891.

Palace Theatre Newark

Tallents is very proud to renew their agreement to be the Principal Sponsor of the Palace Theatre Newark for another three years from 2014

Commenting on the sponsorship, Alistair Millar said,

“I think it’s a fine link up between two historic and well-known names and brands in Newark. Personally, I have a strong interest in local history.

“The Palace Theatre is almost 100 years old and Tallents have been in Newark for over 240 years.

“Between us, that’s nearly 350 years of serving this fine community.

“This continuing sponsorship is a fantastic opportunity for Tallents to support and promote the Palace Theatre and for us all to work together. We are very excited to be involved for another three years.”

Newark Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival

Tallents was delighted in 2014 to become a co-sponsor of 7th annual Newark Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival, an event which sees more than 100 local businesses, schools and charities decorate their own Christmas trees in Newark Parish Church.

Our theme in 2014 saw Santa putting his feet up on a sandy beach after rushing around the world on Christmas Eve to deliver all the children’s Christmas presents. Office manager, Lucinda McDonald said: “It’s to reflect what we do for our customers, they can relax and we’ll do all the work for them.”

Beaumond House Business Club

Tallents is delighted to be a Silver Member of the Beaumond House Business Club and support the hard work of this local Newark charity.

Newark Carnival

Tallents has been an inaugural sponsor of Newark Carnival since it began.

Each summer, thousands of Newark residents lined the streets to enjoy an event that has become a popular fixture in Newark’s summer events.
