Spilsby gets the SO Festival

As reported by the Skegness Standard: Snowy tundras, luminous fairies, fire-spouting musical instruments and a wise and ancient treasure will be coming to Spilsby as part of SO Festival 2014.

Tonight (Tuesday), Ross Ashton will transform the façade of the old Town Hall into a fantastic work of art as his newest projection display, Parts Unknown, is unveiled to the public alongside other fantastical wonderments including the wise and whispering Echo Funnel, magical fairies tapping on their jam jars during Sprite Symphony and the bright and melodic Pyrophones.

Parts Unknown will evoke the mystery and romance of the 19th century Arctic, drawing on magic lantern imagery and gripping sounds capes from creative designer Karen Monid.

Ross Ashton said: “In-keeping with the festival’s theme of journeys, we hope to transport visitors to another time and place,” . “Parts Unknown depicts a snow desert and the heroic nature of the Victorian explorer. We are delighted to once again be part of this festival, and hope that visitors become totally immersed in what we’ve created.”

East Lindsey District Council portfolio holder for culture, leisure and tourism, Adam Grist said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Ross back to East Lincolnshire and cannot wait to see what Karen have in store for Spilsby. We’re sure it will be amazing!

“As well as Ross’s projections, SO Festival in Spilsby will also feature a selection of fantastic art installations being placed into our communities for an evening, giving residents and visitors alike the chance to experience something unique.”
