Can you believe that it's almost time for the third annual edition of Assemble Fest? We can't, and we're the ones organising it! But don't worry, everything's running smoothly at AF HQ and we're busy planning an amazing event for Saturday 28 May.
This year's companies bringing you a diversity of entertainment styles are Bellow Theatre, Broccolily Theatre, Middle Child, Theatre On The Edge, The Pub Corner Poets and The Roaring Girls. As always, the shows will take place in a range of unexpected spaces down Newland Avenue, from outside a launderette to inside a restaurant, with plenty of other fun stuff spread all the way from the Cottingham Road junction to the corner of Queen's Road.
Speaking of which, this year we've taken on a designated Curator to create a programme of awesome additional activity. Bex Phillips is working hard to find Hull's most eclectic talent, from musicians and artists to some really weird and wonderful acts, so keep your eyes peeled for more info in the next few weeks.
As always, tickets to Assemble Fest shows will be incredibly affordable (going on sale soon), plus we'll be holding a Happy Hour again, where you pay what you decide. In the meantime, check out this beautiful artwork that we commissioned Bluebeany to create for the background of our flyers and posters. There's a hamster in a buggy! *squeals*
