SO Festival joins Station Sports Centre, Mablethorpe in achieving the Age-Friendly Business status!

SO Festival has now become a member of the Talk.Eat.Drink (T.E.D.) project in East Lindsey and has achieved the Age Friendly Business Award.

We are T.E.D’s first outdoor event/ festival to be assessed – passing with 94%. We have created a new venture for T.E.D. by providing them with a benchmark to assess other events/ festivals.

At our event this year we will be showing off our new award, 27th June – 2nd July 2017. You can speak to any member of our SO Festival team to find out further details too.
