Thanks for stopping by
As many of you will be aware we’ve been spending large parts of the year in Hull. Our piece Flood is a headlining project for Hull UK Capital of Culture 2017.
The third, stand-alone part of Flood was recently broadcast on BBC television as part of the Performance Live strand and you can still see it here on iplayer.
Thanks to everyone who came to see Rugby Shorts at Selby RLFC as part of Selby Arts Festival – the team had a brilliant time reviving the show and presenting it to new audiences.
Back home in Leeds, The HUB felt warmer than ever recently with our first Dementia Friendly event with The Memory Store and Yorkshire Silents – we forged some new links with organisations and individuals which we hope to build on going forwards. There’s a few pictures over on our Facebook page here.
Scalarama is a nationwide celebration of cinema, for everyone, by everyone, everywhere, taking place every September. Cities, towns and villages are transformed with cinemas popping up in unexpected places – and where classic, rare or locally made films get an annual showing.
Our offerings at the HUB will be Resilience – The Biology of Stress and The Science of Hope – a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress.We are delighted to be presenting this screening in association with our friends at Basis Yorkshire on Thurs 7th September at 6:30pm
Then on Fri 8th September at 7:30pm we present a screening of Brown Willy, directed and produced by Brett & Simon Harvey (O Region, Kneehigh Theatre) described by New Statesman as ‘”Cornwall’s answer to Withnail & I”.
There’s trailers for both films on the booking pages, so do give them a look!
We round off the month with 2 opportunities to see Royal Vauxhall – a hilarious brand new musical which reimagines Princess Diana’s infamous night out in male drag on the gay scene with Freddie Mercury and Kenny Everett.
Finally here’s the list of events for the rest of the year in the HUB.
