Thanks for stopping by

We had a brilliant time recently with 15 Minutes Live at The Holbeck – thanks to everyone that came down, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We will be uploading the plays and sharing them with you soon. in the meantime do have a listen here of previous plays. download them for your daily commute or early morning run, or just share them with a friend!

At the end of April we’re looking forward to welcoming a trio of international performers (from Spain, Ireland and Italy) as part of the ever-popular Best of BE Festival which returns to the HUB as part of its Spring Tour on Sun 24 April.Rounding off the month, don’t miss a mid-week special too with Andy Smith’s The Preston Bill which plays here on Tue 26th April.
We’d like to give you the heads-up on some smashing activities lined up for May in the HUB:

We’ll have another Ceilidh taking place on Sat 14th May once again with the brilliant Greensleeveless Band. Drop us a line to let us know you’re coming so we have an idea of numbers. Entry on the door is £paywhatyoudecide and of course HUB drinks will be just £1.

Two shows which went down brilliantly well at Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year arrive at the HUB in May – Wardrobe Ensemble make their HUB debut on Sun 8 with 1972:The Future of Sex (check out the trailer!) and a couple of weeks later Smoking Apples return on Sun 22 May with CELL. Both shows are already well on their way to selling out so get those reservations in (but please do remember to let us know if you’re unable to make it on the day)!

Looking a little further ahead, keep Saturday 4th June free in your diaries, as we’ll be bringing you How To…Festival 4: Long Ago and Yesterday. We’re currently locking down the timetable but you can expect a day packed full of activities events and entertainments all around the theme of looking back into the past while being firmly rooted in the present.
The full HUB programme ahead can be seen by clicking the calendar links to the right of this page.

 

Keep watching Facebook and Twitter for more regular updates.
