Freedom Festival is Hull’s award-winning international arts festival. From spectacular scenes unfolding in the city centre to intimate moments where audiences and artists meet. They present thought-provoking, playful, and powerful performances in public spaces that address the world we live in.
They bring thousands of people together through their annual festival and year-round artistic and creative programme of performances, installations and community participation to excite, inspire, challenge and provoke.
There will be more than 120 performances, along with musical acts and exhibitions. Events will be held at Zebedee’s Yard, Hull Truck Theatre, streets, and venues in and around the Old Town, Murdoch’s Connection and the Museums Quarter. Highlights include:
Also, there’s plenty to do for children as well. Children are likely to enjoy comedy and theatre-style shows. Including Circle, a new immersive performance work grown out of an artistic collaboration between light artists and musicians. The 45-minute sensory experience combines original music, mesmerising lights and unique choreography to explore themes of identity and migration.
Funny Business is an hilarious show featuring a stunt duck, a human fish and the silliest boxing match you’ve seen. While HIPPOS sees three hippos dance, live and interact with people, but beyond the fun, a message is hidden, that of respect for difference.
Fast Food Megaverse makes a return to Freedom. With Mo the takeaway delivery rider stuck in a parallel universe and needing help. Put on headphones, grab a map and join Mo on an adventure through the multiverse packed with wild characters, unruly technology and a few tasty surprises.
Most of the events are free, but some include a “pay what you can” charge. This has been introduced for the first time this year.
Inspired by the reformist legacy of William Wilberforce we build local, national, and international alliances to create cultural experiences that have something to say about universal values and the future we want to make together.
The festival will be running from Wednesday 30th August until Sunday 3rd September, and the tickets are free!
