The Awakening

Friday 18 and Saturday 19 March 2022

Each evening between 18.00-22.00

Thank you for coming along to The Awakening

We were thrilled to see thousands of people and particularly so many families back on the streets of Hull enjoying The Awakening this weekend.

The feedback from you, our audience was truly fantastic and seeing the joy on the faces of people of all ages as they interacted with all of the incredible program across the City Centre and into the Old Town was fantastic.

We want to thank our partners hugely for their unwavering faith and support in us as a key creative producing engine for this great city, Hull City Council, VHEY and Hull Maritime Project particularly for all their input and support and big thanks to Welcome Back Funding along with Arts Council England, the InSitu and Global Streets networks who collectively funded this brand new event for Hull.

And finally we'd like to thank all the audiences for coming out, being so considerate of each other at this first large scale event for 2 years and bringing the city back to life with such a friendly and delightful atmosphere - we couldn't do it without you. And we hope to make The Awakening an annual event for the city, so watch this space and in the meantime we'll see you all at Freedom Festival in the summer between the 26th August and the 4th September.
