Summary

There’s a buzz in the air as we bring award-winning shows to every corner of Hull, with big names sharing the stage with familiar and favourite local artists. We’re transforming venues in the heart of local communities; from schools to shopping centres, there’s a festival hotspot right on your doorstep.

We’ve got something for everyone as we shine a spotlight on comedy, music, circus, theatre, cabaret, dance and film. There are stories that will bring a tear to the eye, belly-laugh jokes, magical moments and even a bit of puppet nudity. So what are you waiting for?

Bring a friend. Bring your parents. Bring your kids.

Heck, bring everyone Back To Ours.

THE WEST

We’re kicking off in the West at Sirius Academy West and Hymers College. These versatile venues hold everything you need for an action-packed half-term holiday in their amazing halls and theatres. We’re also throwing open the doors to that Anlaby Road gem, the William Gemmell, as this social club gets ready to host C4 Gogglebox favourites Jenny and Lee, who will be sharing the stage with Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse and more with diva Ceri Dupree’s One Man, 19 Women show.
