Participation Opportunity at Freedom Festival 2020!

Do you want to get involved in a massive performance? Would you like to dance through the streets? Fancy getting stuck into some messy fun?

If so, Freedom Festival needs you!

This show has toured all over the world, and this summer it hits Hull. Will you be involved?

Join us at Jubilee Central (King Edward Street, HU1 3SQ) on 26 March at 6pm to hear more about how you can get involved in an enormous participatory performance at Freedom Festival this summer.

No experience is required and you can decide whether or not to take part once you’ve heard more from the artists.

The more the merrier: bring your friends, family and colleagues. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

To take part in this performance you’ll also need to be available for a workshop (date to be decided, between now and September) plus a rehearsal on Friday 4 September and the performance on Saturday 5 September.

Please note that you may prefer not to take part if you have asthma or other respiratory conditions.

Please RSVP to kyra@freedomfestival.co.uk so that we know you’re coming!

*Please note that this meeting has been cancelled in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.   

Update 18th March 2020

Firstly, thank you all so much for your all the enthusiasm and excitement that you have shown when signing up for the participation info meeting that was due to be held at Jubilee Central on 26th March. Sadly, as you may already have guessed, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this meeting in line with governmental advice, in order to protect the health and welfare of our fantastic participants, volunteers, artists and team.

In these unprecedented times of uncertainty around Coronavirus (COVID-19), we hope the festival will still be able to go ahead as planned on 4-6 September and at this stage we’re continuing with our work to make this happen.

Please rest assured that we have all of your expressions of interest on record, and will be in touch with participation opportunities as soon as it is appropriate to do so.

In the spirit of the festival, we urge you to stay optimistic and continue to look after each other, your neighbours and people living in your communities. For the current advice from the NHS click here.

We look forward to seeing you all later in the year - in the meantime, stay safe and well,

The Freedom Festival Team x
