August events: SO Festival
Lincolnshire’s coastal district of East Lindsey is transformed into an international arts venue during this annual summer festival.
One of the East Midlands’ largest and most diverse outdoor cultural events, SO Festival is full of colour, world-class dance, visual arts and music performances. Each year, up to 160,000 people come to see the spectacle on the Lincolnshire coast.
Previous acts have included French master giant puppeteers with their BIG SHOW, telling the story of the universe from the Big Bang; Ted Hughes’ classic modern fable The Iron Man, brought to life through a colossal iron puppet; and the Newcastle-based champion breakdance crew, Bad Taste Cru, who fused physical theatre with dynamic breakdance moves. This year's programme is yet to be revealed, but no matter what is on the bill, you can expect diversity and entertainment that is fun for all the family!
SO Festival takes place in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire and in Skegness over the August Bank Holiday.
