Arts and culture festival returns to Gainsborough

‘Les Quat'fers en l'air’ performing areal acrobatics at the Revive Festival

Save the date for Saturday 15 June as GO Festival makes it way to Gainsborough Town Centre.

From 10am until 6pm, this FREE event will showcase talented performers from Gainsborough and beyond.

The community stage will return with international acts also performing in the Market Place and Elswitha Green that you won’t want to miss.

West Lindsey District Council are pleased to announce a new addition to this year’s festival, thanks to the award by Arts Council England of £30,000 from National Lottery Project Grants. This funding will enable a series of school and community workshops with professional artists and performers to contribute to a spectacular carnival parade as part of the event.

The town centre will host a fantastically colourful and dynamic Caribbean-inspired carnival procession interwoven with more local themes, inspired by English folklore and nature.

Working in collaboration with SO Festival in Skegness, the event is delivering a programme of international artists that showcase amazing theatre, dance and arts.

Food, drinks and much more will be available for the public to purchase throughout the day.

This event will be made possible by funding from West Lindsey District Council’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund, Arts Council England, and Gainsborough Town Council.
