26th August to 4th September 2022

Get involved with Freedom Festival 2022

Our programme this year has a fantastic selection of participation opportunities – whether that is getting involved in a show, becoming the star yourself, or developing your skills by performing in outdoor spaces:

  • Find Your Filter - Electrico 28

    (Professional/artist development)
    If you’re looking to develop your skills performing in outdoor spaces, Electrico 28 (an internationally recognised street theatre company from Mallorca) are delivering a workshop for you to explore your environment and see the world from a new perspective, full of opportunities to create something unique. Great for creatives and artists at any stage in their career.

About this opportunity

For this opportunity please email an EOI and CV to elizabeth@freedomfestival.co.uk - this deadline has now been extended to Wednesday 10th August.

  • All the Sex I've Ever Had - Mammalian Diving Reflex 

    (Individual opportunity for ages 65+)
    A show in development with folks over 65 years who are willing to share the wisdom of their years through an open chat about sexuality and the experiences gained through getting older. We have almost reached capacity for participants with this event - so don’t hesitate in getting in touch!


The following shows are currently fully subscribed but we are now creating a waiting list:

  • The Visionary - Jon Hicks and Matt Rudkin 

    (Local interest groups)
    There is still some space available for special interest groups who would be happy to participate in a bit of slapstick fun and comedy. You don't need to be a performer or actor, for example, you can be a karate or Zumba class, even a 'plein air painter' class! 
  • Mo and the Red Ribbon - L'Homme debout 

    (Individual opportunity for adults)
    We still have limited space left to be a part of our large-scale spectacle this year – help escort our giant puppet navigate the streets of Hull and celebrate alongside the company at the heart of the show.
  • The Little Things - La Mecànica 

    (Children and young people)
    We are looking for children aged 7 - 11 years to take part in a large cast finale moment of an indoor theatre show.
    *UPDATE* Places for this performance have now filled up, but if you think that your little one would be interested in this performance then please give us a call and let us know their availability if we need some extra hands!


Does any of the above take your fancy? Use the button below to email Elizabeth, making sure to use the title of the opportunity as your subject 



Looking for more participation opportunities?

We are currently rebuilding our website which means that not all of our usual pages are here. We will be updating the website to restore key areas as a priority in the next few weeks. Please let us know via info@freedomfestival.co.uk if there is anything urgent missing.
