The Band at the End of the World

presented by Ramshacklicious Theatre Company  

The Band at the End of the World, image credit Mark Dawson.

Existing within their very own miniature apocalyptic microclimate, these idiots are convinced that the inevitable end of the world is upon us, maybe today, maybe right here, and maybe it's denim!

Arriving in a cloud of raucous, brass heavy music, driving a homemade, smoking battle-church and dressed in punk marching band attire, Freedom Festival is proud to premiere a new dusk time version of the show.

Expect euphoric expression, spectacle, a deep magical atmosphere, beautiful physical imagery, fantastical live music and the ridiculous! All brought to life by an expanded cast of local cult members to create an epic, all-encompassing experience.

Also, look out for The Band at the End of the World on the streets of Hull during the day as they scope out the city for new recruits. Be careful they may want to educate you about the new dawn and the next frequency of consciousness.

Please beware of the idiots!
