The Full Shebang is coming to Mansfield

Posted onPosted on 16th Jul

A new festival is coming to Mansfield town centre this month 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 7th September and will be free (with a small cost for some workshop events).

First Art aims to get more people to experience and shape cultural events, through funding from Arts Council England, as part of the Creative People and Places programme.

Dedicated performance space will be created in the town centre and other venues, including Mansfield Museum, The Old Library and Four Seasons Shopping Centre.

Karl Greenwood, First Art director, said: “The Full Shebang will animate the streets and local venues with world-class shows and activities. We will be showing the full shebang of what the arts can offer and hope to attract people to experience their town in a new and unexpected way.”
