31 August - 2 September 2018   #SOFEST18


From finding out how you can get involved to all the latest programme changes, here is a list of FAQ's for all you need to know at SO Festival this year. If you require any further information visit the contact page and get in touch.

Will photographs and/or video be taken at the Festival?

We have a professional film/photographer capturing the Festival.  They will be identifiable in SO Festival T-Shirts.

By taking part in this event you grant Magna Vitae and SO Festival full rights to use the images resulting from the photography/video filming, and any reproductions or adaptations of the images for fundraising, publicity or other purposes to help achieve the organisations aims. This might include (but is not limited to), the right to use them in their printed and online publicity, social media, press releases and funding applications.

If you do not wish to be photographed please inform an event organiser.

What does SO stand for?

A question we often get asked and an answer you can find reading about SO Festival's history.

I am organising a coach trip to Skegness, where can I park?

We would recommend parking a coach at Skegness Coach Station, which is located at Richmond Bus Station, Richmond Drive, Skegness, PE25 3PG.

This is near Skegness Train Station.

We would further recommend your party to be dropped off outside Embassy Theatre before the coach is parked as this is a central location to where all SO Festival's events will take place.

How much does it cost to attend?

The majority of events at SO Festival are usually free - we are currently in the process of organising the 2018 Festival so details are still yet to be confirmed.

Do I need to buy a ticket?

For the majority of the programme, you do not need a ticket! Just turn up in plenty of time to get a good view.  As we release information on SO festival 2017, we will advise if you need to purchase a ticket.

How will I know if there are programme changes?

We do our best to keep everything running on time, but due to the nature of the Festival, changes sometimes need to happen. Please visit our website and social media channels to keep up to date with any changes. We shall do our best to keep you informed of any changes that may occur during SO Festival 2018.

Our Information Points and Ambassadors will also keep you updated should anything change.

How do I get involved?

There are many opportunities to get involved with SO Festival, whether as a participant or volunteer helping with events; we would like to hear from you so get in touch.

Is the brochure available in another format?
