The free arts festival is managed by the charity Magna Vitae, which provides leisure, culture and health services for the benefit of the community.

Magna Vitae’s Managing Director, Mark Humphreys said: “This is a fantastic accolade and endorsement for SO Festival, which continues to get bigger and better every year. As event organisers, Magna Vitae is delighted with the recognition from Holiday Lettings, which is testament to how the Festival has established itself as a leading cultural event and one not to be missed.”

Saskia Welman, spokesperson for said: “SO Festival is a great way to get out and enjoy some performance art in the fresh air of lovely Lincolnshire. We think it’s a perfect event for all ages and we’d encourage everyone to take advantage of the free performances and workshops!”.
