Thanks for stopping by

There’s plenty to make do and see at our How To…Festival 6: Home, Heritage and Belonging. Places are booking up quickly however so if you’d like to come along and take part you can see whats on offer here. You’ll be able to join a guided tour exploring Holbeck’s past and present heritage, learn new culinary skills in the ever-popular Manjit’s Kitchen cooking workshop, or take part in movement and storytelling workshops. Later in the afternoon there’s performances of Between The Two and Bubble Schmeisis, with £Paywhatyoudecide dinner and music  in between.

Our residency in Hull across this year provides some wonderful opportunities for community engagement and we have had such a lovely week both rehearsing on the dock and visiting different schools and centres in the area. We visited a Primary school where we were invited to deliver an assembly. After Alan introduced us all our cast sang a song from the show and our wonderful Choreographer Lucy Hind taught everyone the moves. It looked beautiful to see 260 children doing the synchronised gestures – they were just brilliant!
We hope to continue to deliver more outreach opportunities later in the year.

Part One of Flood by James Phillips with Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and The Space is now available with audio description, so please do share this with any friends and colleagues with poor or no sight who would find this function useful. Click on the link here to watch.

Its still some time off yet but there will be a one-off performance of Rugby Songs in July as part of Selby Arts Festival – details and ticket booking are all here http://selbyartsfestival.co.uk/whatson/rugby-songs/

Our HUB Choir sessions resume again starting Tuesday 25th April  – we meet each week to share some food together before the choir begins which is always a great time to relax after a long day and catch up with each other. We’re always on the lookout for new members and you can sign up right here.

More HUB events coming up as we move into Spring can be found by clicking here.

Do follow us on Twitter and Facebook for regular updates on this and our activities and adventures in Hull across the year.

See you soon

Slung Low

'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
