LFest is the multi award winning Lesbian Music, Arts and Comedy Festival.
LFest is the multi award winning Lesbian Music, Arts and Comedy Festival, widely recognised as being the “number one” Lesbian festival in the UK and is now in it’s fourth year. With a host of acts and activities to suit all tastes it has grown year on year.
It’s a festival that offers a safe and fun environment where lesbians can bring their families and just hang out. We try and pack as much into the weekend as possible and aim what we do at a broad spectrum of ages and interests. We have outdoor music stages – one for acoustic music – and an arts stage. There’s cabaret, a comedy stage, a cinema, fun sports and a wide array of workshops too. We have an attitude of ‘if it’s not been done before, let’s try it!’
So what and who to expect this year…
2 Music Stages – An Areana and the Acoustic Stage
“Some familiar faces return together with a huge selection of new artists from far and wide who will be tantalising your ears, delivering an eclectic and electrifying mix of smooth acoustic folk through to bluesy soul pop and rock. You will certainly find all you need at L Fest 2014 ..whatever your flavour and whatever your mood, we are sure this year’s line-up will have you rockin’ out in the summer sun…”
Lucy & Mandy Burton. L Fest Music Coordinators
“Three years ago if someone had said to me you will programme the arts stage at L Fest, I would have thought they were mad! I must thank SpringOut once again for the the arts, cinema & workshops programming for the past 3 years… I’m so pleased with the amazing artists we have for you over the weekend with a diverse line up of authors, spoken word,discussion, theatre and much more.”
“This year the L Fest cinema has a truly international theme with films from across the globe! We will provide a wide range of entertainment from full length feature films: “Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf?” (from Peccadillo Pictures -starring Guinevere Turner) and Australia’s “Submerge” by director Kat Holmes who’ll be flying in for Q & A’s…
Award-winning short films-the adorable “Cat Sitting”(by Wollie Boehm) and thought provoking anti-bullying short “Love Is All You Need” (k Rocco shields writer director & producer Dana Gardner) – PLUS- the PSA/Music video “She4Me” directed by Nicole Conn starring Nicole Pacent, Gabrielle Christian, Barbara Niven (“A Perfect Ending”) with cameos by Traci Dinwidie (“Elena Undone”) and Cathy DeBuono.
Late Night films for the ladies looking for a quieter evening: “Hannah Free” – starring Sharon Gless and “And Then Came Lola” starring Jill Bennett, last year’s L Fest guest. With this great line-up and schedule in our L Fest cinema, we’ll reverse the schedule over the weekend to be sure you get to see the projects important to you while enjoying all L Fest has to offer”
Here Come The Girls Cabaret Night
“Another new area for 2014, the cabaret and comedy stage will run each night due to your feedback for more in 2013! Cabaret style seating and tables, large stage in the downstairs bar will ensure room for everyone… I cannot wait to see all of these shows!”
