Take your seat for the Aberration Cabaret, hosted by Helen Sandler. With Archibald Tactful – proto-god, cement-lover and experimental dancer; Ali Cocks twirling from the aerial hoop; sharp spoken word from radio star Sarah McCreadie; the mellow voice of Frankie Sinatra… and the world’s first Sex Noise Orchestra, conducted by Rachael Clerke.

L Fest is a whole weekend of music, arts, comedy and workshops for lesbian and bi women, and their friends and families of all genders. The festival is now SOLD OUT. If you are lucky enough to have a ticket, this includes entry to the cabaret (subject to room capacity). Good access.

Aberration launched in Aberystwyth five years ago and is now hitting the road with funding from Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government, National Lottery, Aberystwyth University, and Over the Rainbow vegetarian guesthouse. Programmed by SpringOut and Enfys Aber (Aberystwyth University’s LGBT staff network). Expect the unexpected!

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.
