The inaugural Festival of the Sky will take place in Cleethorpes on the 6th to the 8th of September. Supported by the Coastal Communities Fund, and organized in partnership by festival specialists From the Fields Ltd and North East Lincolnshire Council, the aim is to create a largely un-ticketed, accessible and engaging event.

Festival of the Sky will bring together great arts and culture across the weekend, with free performances, activities and workshops for festival-goers of all ages. The main ‘festival hub’ will be situated on the promenade and beach, with additional pop-up activity taking place throughout the town. It will attract regional audiences, combining traditions around seaside experiences with culture and wellbeing-based content.

We are opening the door to creative, innovative and engaging ideas and performances including workshops, live stages, lectures, stalls and film screenings. The festival is themed around sky, flight, environment and discovery, and we are particularly keen to support ideas that reference this.
