A brand new festival is coming to Mansfield town centre this September thanks to First Art and Without Walls Touring Network Partnership.
Featuring a high-wire circus, a life-size interactive game zone based on classic arcade games, trampoline and acrobatics shows, music, dance and model making with the creatives behind Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep, The Full Shebang Festival takes place on 7 September and will be open to everyone and free of charge (with a small cost for some workshop events).
First Art works in North Nottinghamshire and North Derbyshire to get more people to experience and shape extraordinary cultural events, through funding from Arts Council England, as part of the national Creative People and Places programme.
Dedicated performance space will be created in the town centre and popular venues, including Mansfield Museum, The Old Library and Four Seasons Shopping Centre will open their doors to host performances and workshops throughout the day. More details will be revealed closer to the date.
Keep checking this page and the council's Facebook page for updates about the festival.
