We’re on the look-out for artists and performers to take to the stage at this year’s The Full Shebang Festival.


If you’re an artist or performer living, working or based in Mansfield or Ashfield, this is your chance for (up to) 15 minutes of festival fame.

Selected artists will take to the Shebang Introducing stage on Saturday 7 September as part of The Full Shebang Festival – the free one-day arts festival in Mansfield town centre.

We want to hear from individuals, groups, and organisations across all performance art forms including:


            • singers
            • musicians
            • cabaret performers
            • circus performers
            • dancers
            • actors
            • poets
            • and spoken word artists.


Every year we receive hundreds of surveys from audiences to look at ways to improve The Full Shebang. The idea of showcasing local talent on a dedicated stage came from local people, so we’re really excited about co-producing this with the local community.

Performers will be paid a fee for their time and on-the-day costs including travel and subsistence, and technical and production.

Artists will also be supported on the day by the Full Shebang technical and production team.
