East Lindsey’s SO Festival 2016 has issued its ‘last call’ for ambassador applications, as the deadline to register interest closes on April 29.

The arts festival is seeking 20 arts enthusiasts from across Lincolnshire to be the face of the upcoming festival.

They will be responsible for engaging with the public and promoting the event, as well as listening to audience feedback that will influence future festival programmes.

Lorna Fulton, SO Festival director, said: “We’re looking for anyone over the age of 16 who is interested in the arts and would like to learn new skills. We offer full training to our ambassadors, which will make a great addition to their CV, including customer care, marketing, events and community engagement.

“We had fantastic feedback from our young ambassadors last year, so wanted to open the opportunity out to a wider range of ages and offer even more places on the scheme.

“This is a brilliant opportunity for anyone looking for work experience or those wishing to gain future employment within the creative and cultural sectors.

“We can’t wait to see the festival tour East Lindsey once again. Our aim is to make the arts accessible to 
everyone and create opportunities for the local community to get involved.”

This year’s SO Festival, running from June 25 to July 3, will tour Mablethorpe, Horncastle, Alford, Louth, Spilsby, Woodhall Spa and Skegness for nine days of outdoor entertainment.
