Assemble Fest take two is less than a week away and it’s set to be an awesome day with great theatre, fabulous street performers and even a treasure hunt. And let’s not forget about the Hub Space. Those who attended last year will know that the Community Church on the corner of Newland and Cottingham Road becomes a ‘hub’ (geddit?) of activity on Assemble Fest day and this year is no different.
The ‘Play Space’ will feature an array of free half-hour long taster workshops. Ever fancied yourself as the champion of Strictly or wondered how on-stage fights look so realistic? Perhaps you just want to spend half an hour clowning around and being silly or moving and grooving like a carnival diva. With (deep breath) acting, clowning, stage combat, dancing, wearable sculpture, stilt acrobatics and processional dance there are plenty of (FREE!) workshops on offer for all ages run by Carnival Arts and students from Hull University’s Drama department. So if you fancy trying something new, head on down to the hub on the 23rd of May. And did I mention that they’re free?
As well as all of this, we also have the ‘Work Space’, which will play host to the Arts Development team from Hull City Council, the Hull Truck team behind Grow, and the Roots and Wings team. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet and chat with experienced professionals, and learn more about their programmes. If you’re a creative with an idea and/or are passionate about Hull’s cultural present and future, then come and pick the brains of these industry pros and hear what they have to say about Hull and the arts.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, the ‘Café Space’ will be open from 10am until 6pm, so you can come and chill out at the Hub Space too!
So whether you want to try something new, chat to one of the teams or simply sit down and have a cuppa, the Hub Space will have its doors wide open on the 23rd of May so come on down!
