As night falls across the city of Hull, a number of angels begin to appear, high up on the rooftops.  They take to the air, magically suspended above the waiting crowd below.

The angels start to glide down into the audience, releasing white feathers which float across the sky.  Each angel has their own unique character and style and as their aerial antics become more boisterous, the clouds of feathers thicken, creating a sense of awe and wonder.

Once the last angel has taken flight, the crowd will be showered with a spectacular explosive display of feather fireworks. The angels leave the audience with a dream-like sea of feathers in which to dance and play after the show.

A playful, visual spectacle that will enchant audiences of all ages.

Price: Free – Ticketed [Limited Availability].

Tickets for groups are no longer available.

The site is suitable for wheelchairs and there is a designated viewing area for wheelchair users. Stewards will be able to direct you to this area should you wish to use it. Audio Description and a Hearing Loop are available for the Place Des Anges performance. To register for use of Audio Description please email boxoffice@hull2017.co.uk and you will be sent further information.

General seating is not available and during the show the audience moves wherever they wish within the designated area. We will have a very limited number of seats available for those who have difficulty standing for long periods.  Please get in touch with us (the organisers of the event) on boxoffice@hull2017.co.uk in advance of the show day if you require this support. This will enable us to allocate a seat for you and stewards will be available to assist you to and from the seating area if you require it.

We’ve prepared a handy guide explaining transport and parking options for this event.
