Southampton Festivals is a non-profit company that is raising up Southampton as a festival city. We collaborate with and support a wide range of partners in the city’s festival season, and look at ways to introduce new events into the city calendar. Festivals can showcase the city’s talent and diversity, drive regeneration, link the business and cultural sectors, and provide opportunities for small businesses, freelancers, and volunteers. We are making that happen.
