SO Festival is committed to being an accessible and inclusive festival for all.

Our work with Attitude is Everything helps to make this possible and we are proud to have been awarded Bronze on their Charter of Best Practice.

We are also thrilled to have been awarded East Lindsey’s T.E.D Age Friendly Business Award, for being recognised to provide an excellent service and environment for our older audiences.

The SO Festival team work hard to make adjustments and give you as much information as possible prior to the festival, to make your experience enjoyable. If there is anything that we can do to improve your experience or if you have any questions about accessibility at the festival please contact Yasmin Day on yasmin.day@mvtlc.org or 01507 613445.
