Thanks for stopping by

Over the last two years we have been running our very own Writer’s Group here at the HUB. On Saturday July 30th dozens of local writers came together to create 72 short stories inspired by the local area.
You may have seen the stories appearing on signs across Holbeck. Bringing together these stories, Slung Low’s core creative team have made It Happened Here, an original audio journey to follow through the streets of Holbeck, with an illustrated map to plot your own adventure. Find out how to book a free place here .There’s also the opportunity to take part throughout the day at our next How To Festival on 2nd October.

Speaking of which, the line-up for How To …Festival (5): The Bride of the Fun Palace of Fear is now live here: We’ve Cooking With Manjit, Scriptwriting suspense with Joe Lidster, Lantern Making with Handheld Arts, Horror Make Up with Doug Thompson as well as Mind-Reader extraordinaire Harrison Richards.

We’re about to head to Switzerland making a new piece to celebrate the birthday of DAS THEATER an der Effingerstrasse – we are very excited to be making new connections with our European neighbours. More information here.

There’s more great shows coming to the HUB this autumn – check out the diary links to the left of this page

If you’d like to join the choir on Tuesday evenings you can sign up here.

Enquiries for the dormitory use are here here

You can also still listen to or download  the batch of 15 Minute Live plays that we recorded at The Holbeck.

More news next month but as ever tune in regularly on Twitter and Facebook for more regular updates.

See you soon
