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.
