Thanks for stopping by

This week the team are off the coast of Whitby onboard the fishing trawler the Chieftain as we begin filming the first part of Flood by James Phillips with Hull UK City of Culture 2017. You remember last month we did some underwater filming for the project as part of a teaser which is now live –

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)

'I have put Holbeck in my address for the last two years but today was the first time I discovered the heart of it - I had no idea about the pubs, social clubs, quaint back to back terraces and history that makes up the real Holbeck, south of the canal.  A big thanks to Slung Low for opening my eyes to a place I have claimed to call home.'  - Audience Member
