Roll up for Freedom Festival 2019, Hull’s award-winning arts festival for the whole family.
Hull’s award-winning family arts festival is back, only this year the fun begins on Wednesday 28th August until 1st September 2019. Come enjoy the last few days of the summer holiday for free. Visit www.freedomfestival.co.uk to view the full programme, but here’s our top five picks of shows for a younger audience –
UK Premiere of Fidelis Fortibus by Circus Ronaldo (ticketed). A comical and poetic circus performance with warm humour and slight melancholy, Fidelis Fortibus is a highly unusual solo performance created and performed by award winning circus legend Danny Ronaldo, who returns to Freedom Festival following his performance in 2012. More information here.
Swoolish Garage, K-veewagon terrace (Free, unticketed). The ultimate festival hang out and theatrical wellness experience in our festival gardens. Take a load off in one of the ten designer wheelbarrow loungers, let the mobile kettle cart run you up a wonderfully warm footbath and who knows, you might even be treated to an award deserving foot rub. More information here.
Apocalytic Circus, My House (Free, unticketed). Come a bit closer and look in through the doors and windows of this magical, quirky structure. What can you see? Step inside and become part of the performance. If you’re patient enough, you may just find out who lives here. A free circus theatre experience for the whole family to enjoy, playfully exploring the habits and routines we create to feel at home and how we must compromise to live alongside others. After the show, you can explore and play in the structure. More information here.
Superhallo, Remix Hurray (Free, unticketed). Be amazed as a colourful building turns into an original fiesta factory for you to explore. Create your own party along the way. By operating the installation, you’ll create a unique and visual interplay with a spectacular, yet intimate, festive finale. More information here.
Hull’s International Carnival (Free, unticketed). Hull’s International Carnival returns for its third year, louder and more vibrant than ever. Celebrating the different cultures and traditions of the city step onto the streets of Hull city centre for a homegrown party parade. More information here.
