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.
We're grateful for all the support we've had over the past 12 months, especially from the Newland Avenue traders and Residents Association. It’s wonderful to be part of such an amazing community.
Over the last 4 incredible years, Assemble Fest has had 5 festivals, supported 25+ local theatre companies, seen 28 premieres of new work, staged events in 30+ spaces, held a special one-off festival on Hessle Road and employed 100+ members of the local community.
Now, we have decided to review what the future of Assemble Fest looks like and so we will be taking a year off, returning fresher and bolder in 2019. We want to invite a new generation of artists, makers and community ambassadors to lead the festival to new heights.
We will be appointing a new team in the oncoming few months for the next phase of Assemble Fest’s life. More details will be coming soon, but in the meantime if you have any questions feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
