For one day only on Hull’s Newland Avenue, Assemble Fest transforms the most unlikely of places into pop-up performance spaces. Watch the avenue comes alive as flashmobs, interactive shows, music, art and dance erupt in a variety of the area’s independent venues, from delis to hairdressers.

Supported by Newland’s local and international traders, the festival features new site-specific works from Hull’s burgeoning theatre companies and family-friendly activities along the street. Make sure you see it first at Assemble Fest.
