Dementia Friendly Training is underway in the HUB today as part of our commitment to become as accessible for all as possible and to prepare for a specific Dementia Friendly event which will take place at the HUB in May. More news on that as plans shape up.
We’re also finalising plans and the timetable for our next How To…Festival. We will have full details about the day for you next month, but for now hold the date in your diary for Sunday 7th May. The theme for this – our sixth How To… – will be “Home, Heritage and Identity” and we’ve some cracking activities lined up for the day which will culminate in performances of Rochi Rampal & Dan Tyler’s Between The Two and Nick Cassenbaum’s Bubble Schmeisis.
Coming up in the HUB this month Getting Better Slowly on Sun 19 Feb is Adam Pownall’s funny, moving and honest account of waking up to find his body slowly shutting down affected by Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and asks the audience to consider how they would deal with an unexpected illness or accident. You can read some of the press coverage for the show here on this page.
Rounding off the month, Daniel Bye’s brand new show Safe House on Sun 26th Feb is described as “the exposed gearbox of a political thriller”, and blends his trademark storytelling with a series of live interventions from the audience.
A quick reminder that if you’re attending HUB performances or indeed just passing, you can drop off contributions (non perishable items) at our HUB collection point for Holbeck Food Bank
(read more here).
We hope to see you in Hull or Holbeck at some point soon where a warm welcome awaits you as always.
See you soon
