Site Description

The ground level is mostly public footpaths, roads and parks making it accessible for everyone.  We shall endeavour to provide you with as much information as you require prior to SO Festival to help you plan but if you feel there is something we can do to improve your experience during your time with us, please do not hesitate to contact us.

As much as we hope to have fine weather during the festival, sometimes, this just isn't the case. We do our best to keep everything running on time, but due to the nature of the Festival, changes sometimes need to be made.

Please visit our website, social media channels, Information Points & Ambassadors to keep up to date with any changes. All programme details are correct at the time of going to print.

Keep an eye out for our Ambassadors who will be clearly identifiable in SO Festival t-shirts and glad to show you the way. There will also be visible Information Points in each location during SO Festival to help you during your visit.
