Fantastic Italian daredevils to headline the 2018 SO Festival on their first ever visit to the UK

Fantastic Italian daredevils to headline the 2018 SO Festival on their first ever visit to the UK

A SPECTACULAR display of human vertical and aerial acrobatics will thrill the crowds at this year's SO Festival, as a top European act visits the UK for the first time.

Headlining on the Saturday evening, September 1, in Skegness will be the phenomenal Italian artists who together make up eVenti Verticali.

Under the direction of brothers Luca and Andrea Piallini, who founded the company in 2006, the show enthrals audiences with its stunning circus and acrobatic skills – all performed vertically More »

Based in Sardinia, this is the company's first time in Britain, and the show is set against a 'super hero' backdrop. A floor is rotated by 90-degrees on which the performers step, run, jump, dance and tell a heroes and villains story that is watched with 'bated breath'.

Luca and Andrea try to explain, although it needs to be seen to be believed!

"The walls become our stage and every time there is a different space then eVenti Verticali reinvents, recreates and reinterprets.

"We are so excited about bringing our world-renowned show to the British audience for the first time. Not only will you see a lot of acrobatics and impressive evolutions in the air, but also a cops and robbers story that will make you laugh," they promised.

For So Festival organisers this is a real coup and shows the benefit of engaging this year's artistic director, Jens Frimann Hansen from top Danish European production house, Helsingør Teater.

This 2018 festival is once again being co-ordinated by the Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture, partnered by Arts Council England, East Lindsey District Council, Passage Festival, Helsingor Teater, Without Walls and Coasters.

Events, the vast majority free, are planned in Mablethorpe on Friday August 31 from noon until 5pm, and in Skegness on Saturday September 1, from noon until 10pm, and on Sunday, September 2, from noon until teatime.

Cultural Project Co-ordinator for the Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture, Katie-Louise Green, promises more exciting announcements.

"We are thrilled to be able to announce eVenti Verticali as our headline act, it promises to be a fantastic show for all the family. And this is just the start of our news as we look to provide a fun-packed two days. It is going to be brilliant," she said.

East Lindsey District Council’s new Shop Front Grant Scheme will launch in July.

East Lindsey District Council’s new Shop Front Grant Scheme will launch in July.

East Lindsey District Council agreed £120,000 of funding to the scheme in its 2018/ 19 budget and it has now agreed the criteria for applications.

ELDC has previously run two Shop Front Grant Schemes, the most recent of which awarded over £45,000 to 24 successful applicants across the District.

Under the new scheme applicants will be able to bid for between £3,000 and £10,000 with ELDC paying up to 60% of total costs for the reinstatement of historic architectural details and historic features. It is hoped that the larger maximum grant amount will lead to more significant investment in premises and, therefore, a greater impact on the look of the High Street. More »

To be eligible to apply, applicants must be based in one of the following eight town centres: Alford, Coningsby, Horncastle, Louth, Mablethorpe, Skegness, Spilsby or Sutton on Sea. Applications are restricted to independent premises only. Priority will also be given to installation of traditional shopfronts, in order to restore the character of a building.

Portfolio Holder for Coastal Economy, Councillor Steve Kirk, said: "I'm delighted to see the Council approve the new criteria for the Shop Front Grant Scheme. Our most recent scheme was hugely positive for the District and allowed some of our businesses to improve and futureproof their shop frontage."

Portfolio Holder for Market Towns and the Rural Economy, Councillor Adam Grist, said: "This a massively positive step that will allow us to help directly improve the High Street in a number of our towns and hopefully make the town more appealing for shoppers and visitors. We are acutely aware that independent retailers are facing challenges times but by working with businesses and making this investment we hope it'll encourage more people to shop locally and support our business community."

In July, ELDC will consider the introduction of a Manufacturing Growth Incentive Scheme for manufacturing businesses looking to grow in the District. The Scheme would offer the businesses a discretionary refund on the business rates payable on the additional floor space they're looking to create. If approved, applications will be judged on various factors including the size of new premises, employment opportunities and overall economic impact. » Less
