Freedom Festival

Dates for 2021 to be confirmed soon!

From epic to intimate.

Freedom Festival is Hull’s award-winning international arts festival. From epic spectaculars unfolding in the city centre to intimate moments where audiences and artists meet, we present thought-provoking, playful, and powerful performances that address the world we live in.

We bring thousands of people together through our annual festival and year-round artistic and creative programme of performances, installations, and community participation to excite, inspire, challenge, and provoke.

We celebrate Hull’s independent spirit and extraordinary heritage working closely with artists, creative organisations, the private sector, academic partners, third sector organisations, families, individuals, and community groups to deliver year-round creative activity and a world-class yearly arts festival.

We are an organisation which generates new ideas, is passionate about supporting artists to develop ideas and art forms and supporting young people to explore the arts. Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do, and we believe that the arts are central to the wellbeing of our society.

We are confident and resilient, central to the cultural ecology in Hull and increasingly well positioned and influential in the wider arts sector.

We are globally connected, outward looking, and committed to learning from our international partners.

Please keep checking back as Freedom Festival’s 2021 dates and programme of events will soon be revealed.
