FRIDAY 14TH JUNE TO SUNDAY 30TH JUNE

Bigger & Better than Ever Before

As the Zero Degrees Festival in Louth came to a close, the overwhelming response to its success this year was conclusive – “Outstanding!”. The festival had been bigger, better and covered more events and venues than ever before. The crowds and attendance at all the main events had exceeded those of previous years.

Lucy Lumb, one of the volunteer organisers was delighted with the way the festival had gone this year “There was a real range of family friendly events, high quality performances, professional acts as well as local bands, schools performances, voluntary performers and community groups.  It’s everything you should expect from a local festival, designed to celebrate community, arts, music and entertainment”.

“We had over 600 at Party in the Pews and about 3000 at the Vintage Day. This year we had some amazing comedians visit Louth for the Big Comedy Weekend and Comedy at the Dog and the venues were full to capacity. The music events throughout the two weeks were fantastic and really well attended. We are also really looking forward to the British Sea Power gig, an extra event, to be held on Saturday 29th July at the King’s Head”.

Alan Mumby, one of the founder organisers of the festival, is keen to involve more people and recruit more in the festival team. “We are very grateful to all of the sponsors and supporters who have made this year’s festival possible. We’ll be having an open house session early in September and would really like to get together interested groups and members of the public to put forward ideas for the 2018 festival.
