L Fest 2013

L Fest, 19-22 July 2013, Uttoxeter Racecourse


The music and arts festival for lesbian and bisexual women and their friends and families returned with a swisher venue (Uttoxeter Racecourse, near Alton Towers) and a packed weekend of entertainment and activities.

SpringOut ran the arts progamme at L Fest and had some treats for you!

Arts stage: drama, authors, cabaret, including Jackie Kay, VG Lee, Clare Summerskill, Sonority Turner and Queer Playback Theatre.

Arts workshops: from drumming to zumba and from graffiti to clowning.

Cinema: new and classic lesbian films including features from Desert Hearts to Stud Life, and issue-based short docs like Pull Yourself Together and Butch Losses.

SpringOut is taking a step back from L Fest and we will no longer be main programmers in 2014 as we wish to focus more on our own events. If you would like to be part of L Fest 2014 or future events as performers or crew, your direct contact is now: cindy@lfest.co.uk. For SpringOut, email: springout4@gmail.com

But don’t be surprised if we still pop up for a few hours at L Fest in July! It’s hard to resist!

SpringOut’s programme at L Fest 2013 was supported by Arts Council England.
