Horncastle Emerge Festival is a young people led arts festival inspired by Shakespeare. Over 6 months founder of do-dance Sophie Watkinson has been working with the young people in Horncastle to co-produce this amazing festival. The young people made important event decisions, created and choreographed their own work to perform or show as part of the festival. Please see snippets from the festival below.
