Assemble Fest 2017 and Our Street Our Stage have been incredible, and we can’t thank everyone enough who was involved and participated in some way.
It's cold and wintry outside but if you wander down Newland Avenue you'll find something very special!
For Our Street Our Stage, we took all the research collected by our Heritage Research Coordinator, Dan Dearing, and created a very special heritage information board for Newland Ave! Designed to raise knowledge of and pride in the local area, the heritage board is a colourful and accessible way to find our more about the heritage of the area. From Newland's marshy origins to it's contribution to Hull Pals, you'll be able to read about the avenues past and follow our heritage trail along the planters too!
You can read more about the heritage we did online here.
Thank you to the Heritage Lottery Fund, Newland Residents Association, Design By George and everyone involved in Assemble Fest 2017 and Our Street Our Stage for making this possible!
Chris Gruca from Theatre on the Edge provides an update on the wedding of the year.
This year Bellow Theatre are taking the melodies to a whole new level.
This year we're running a special project exploring Newland’s heritage entitled Our Street Our Stage. It will celebrate the history of the area and the diverse community in which the festival has found its home. From Newland's beginnings as green fields, right through to the vibrant traders and residents it now serves, Our Street Our Stage will see a collaboration between local historians and researchers, artists, volunteers and residents of Hull. The research is currently being turned into a free accessible evening event, taking place on Saturday 3rd June.
