GIANT crocheted lions, gobby grannies and a big pig are set to pack a punch across East Lindsey over the next two weeks as the SO Festival becomes a nine-day, district-wide cultural celebration.

Traditionally the festival has run over three days in Skegness, but this year’s bumper festival is set to run for over a week all across the district, before descending on Skegness for a three-day climax.

Louth, Mablethorpe and Alford are all in line for the fun coming locally from Saturday, June 23 until Wednesday, June 27. See the Leader on Wednesday for previews.
