One of the East Midlands’ largest and most diverse outdoor cultural events, SO Festival is full of colour, world-class dance, arts and music. Visual art, theatre, performers and dance acts fill the streets and up to 160,000 people come to see the spectacle in Skegness during June-July each year.

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, soundscapes and narrative; and the Newcastle-based champion breakdance crew, Bad Taste Cru, who fused physical theatre with dynamic breakdance moves.
