Thanks for stopping by

We’re hurtling towards the halfway point in the year, and fittingly it’s brilliant to be able to announce plans for our next big project. Over midsummer we will be working with the Royal Shakespeare Company and a group of friends old and new to set up Fairy Portal Camp at Avonbank Gardens, Stratford-Upon-Avon. Find out how to take part and read all about it here.

A little closer to home, towards the end of May, keep your eyes peeled in Bradford for The Knowledge Emporium taking to the road again and pitching up as part of Bradford Literature Festival. Come and tell us your stories, share knowledge, facts, information and secrets in the Big Book of Everything We Know in exchange for free sweets.

Across the Pennines, Manchester has been chosen as the location for the National Commemoration of the Centenary of the Battle of The Somme which recently put out a call for hundreds of volunteers to take part in Somme 100 Pals. For the opportunity to work with Slung Low members Alan, Lucy and Dan click here for more information.

Finally we’ve plenty to look forward to at the HUB in the coming weeks –
Victoria Melody’s Hair Peace is a must see and Leeds own Manic Chord make their HUB debut with their new show The Economy of Ecology

And on Saturday 4th June we’ll be bringing you How To…Festival 4: Long Ago and Yesterday. 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.

See you soon
