SO Festival line up announced by organisers


The line up for this year’s SO Festival programme has been revealed.

International musicians, world-renowned theatre and innovative dance acts feature in the east Lincolnshire arts extravaganza from June 25 to July 5.

Taking place in Horncastle, Louth, Alford, Woodhall Spa, Mablethorpe and Spilsby, the festival ends in Skegness with a three-day spectacular finale.

The event, which launched in 2009, has gone from strength to strength to become the fastest-growing free festival in the East Midlands,

Highlights include Wet Picnic’s show The Lift, with each floor representing a different scene or event performed for the audience. While Wheel House, performed by Acrojou, sees visitors walk alongside the show as it unfolds inside the circular hand-made set.

Festival director Lorna Fulton said: “The team at SO Festival has been working very hard to make sure that this year’s festival is the biggest and best one ever and now visitors can find out everything the festival has to offer.

“Every year we’ve seen the event grow to offer even more days on the programme and visiting even more towns across Lincolnshire.”

She added: “The event is always very popular among locals and visitors as there is such a variety of entertainment to suit all ages.”

The festival is delivered by Magna Vitae Trust with East Lindsey District Council and Arts Council England.

Entry is free for all events except the British Cycling Championships and Lincolnshire School Prom. Visit
