Be part of the biggest feast Hull has ever seen!

Freedom Festival Arts Trust, in partnership with Hull Harvest Feastival and Keepmoat Homes, are working together to deliver a gastronomic event like no other.

The Freedom FEASTival will take place in the Freedom Festival Gardens situated in Queens Gardens on 3rd September as part of a wider programme of outdoor arts, circus, interactive installations and workshops where we will see thousands of people come together in a celebration of people, cultures and community… a carnival of colour and fun. Click here to find out more.

Throughout the summer Freedom FEASTival will hold events at allotments and farms across the city to grow and harvest vegetables and to cook and prepare recipes for the big event on 3rd September.

We need you!

There are lots of opportunities for volunteers to get involved with this project by growing and cooking food (see a list of activities and dates below) and you can register your interest in getting involved by completing the sign-up form or by downloading our volunteer booklet for more information.

Limited free tickets to have a seat at the feast will be released shortly via www.freedomfestival.co.uk – sign up for our newsletter to be first in the queue.
