Thanks to the support of Arts Council England and partners in Lincoln, the festival will see international artists from countries including Japan and the USA exhibit and perform their work alongside artists from all over the UK.
Uzma Johal, Producer and Co-founder of Threshold Studios, said:
Frequency Festival was planned to take place during half-term so that families could make the trip into Lincoln. The artwork on show is truly amazing and there are plenty of opportunities for children to have a go at activities, from a free art trail around the city to interactive performances, workshops and street games. My top tips are Squidsoup’s beautiful light installation at Waterside Shopping centre, Compagnia TPO’s magical storytelling at Lincoln Drill Hall and the incredible seeper light show at Lincoln Castle.
To celebrate the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, they will use the theme of ‘Liberation’ to explore ideas of freedom through the latest technology. Lincoln is home to one of four surviving originals of Magna Carta, which will be on display at Lincoln Castle during the festival.
Other venues for Frequency 2015 include a Roman gatehouse, medieval churches, The Collection Museum and the University of Lincoln.
Tickets are available from www.frequency.org.uk or from the Lincoln Drill Hall box office.
