Festival Programme

Our SO Festival Programme 2018 is now ready for you!


I am delighted to bring a distinctively European flavour to this year’s festival with a fabulous programme of spectacular events for all the family.

Lincolnshire’s popular resorts of Mablethorpe and Skegness, like most communities, have had their ups and downs. Despite their many challenges, they each have their individual charm. These two sides of community life are reflected in our 2018 festival programme. We bring together some of the UK’s and Europe’s most acclaimed and diverse artists, who inject these themes into their work. We hope this will encourage debate about the future of the local area.

As an ‘outsider’, it has been a great privilege for me to engage with the people of Mablethorpe and Skegness and an honour to be part of such a great festival. I would like to thank everyone who has played a part in supporting SO Festival 2018.
