Your 2016 festival guide freedomfestival.co.uk Headline Sponsor

An arts festival where the city is a stage Welcome to Freedom Festival 2016. This year marks nine years of Hull’s biggest arts festival: a family-friendly, diverse celebration of ‘freedom’, commemorating the work of anti-slavery pioneer and Hull MP William Wilberforce. Throughout the festival we continue to explore and celebrate the city’s historic links to freedom, as well as challenging what freedom means to us in 2016 through some hardhitting shows. With over 200 performances by artists from over 25 countries, plus an extraordinary line-up of local and national artists, there’s something for everyone. Theatre, circus, dance, music, cabaret, spoken word, visual arts and so much more.

“ Be brave and explore things you’ve never seen before. There’s so much to see and do and it only lasts three days…so whatever you do, don’t miss a minute of it.” We hope that all festival-goers young and old have an unforgettable weekend and enjoy every moment of the festival, from day to night. I urge you to stay out into the evenings to enjoy our stunning night-time spectaculars and other evening highlights. Prepare to be amazed. Mikey Martins Artistic Director and Chief Executive, Freedom Festival Arts Trust

Ticketed shows: Most of Freedom Festival is completely free to enjoy. There are a small number of ticketed shows marked with ‘Tickets’ throughout the guide, with details of how to book.

Made in Hull – bold, brave and creative This year is special. For the very first time the programme has been designed and delivered by our own team based in Hull. It is genuinely MADE IN HULL, thanks to Mikey Martins, our Artistic Director, and his team. They’ve done a marvellous job, being bold and brave in their creativity. The festival programme is incredibly rich and a huge effort has been put into offering something for everyone. I hope you enjoy the wonder of what’s on offer over the weekend. And remember – to echo a phrase that unified the city in 2013 – that this is a festival that belongs to everyone.

Working together with Hull 2017 The countdown to 2017 is now upon us. As the city’s flagship arts and culture festival, Freedom Festival is proud to have played a key part in Hull’s winning bid to be UK City of Culture 2017, and to be part of a packed cultural calendar this summer that has included Humber Street Sesh, Amy Johnson Festival and more. ‘Freedom’ is also one of the themes of Hull 2017’s four seasons (July – September 2017), bringing an important opportunity to reinforce messages of freedom – in all its forms and meanings – to new audiences as Hull takes its place in the national spotlight. Working together Freedom Festival Arts Trust has worked closely with Hull UK City of Culture 2017 on its volunteer programme, building on a successful partnership that began last year. “ I have a dream.” Poet Lemn Sissay MBE delivered a stirring rendition of Martin Luther King’s speech, Freedom Festival, Hull, 2013.

Children’s, Family, Theatre, Installation

Audiences of all ages are invited to delight in discovering the secret music under our feet, using a series of elaborate ear trumpets, created from brass instruments. The ear trumpets transform barely-audible sounds into noises, loud and clear – as if by magic. A playful, musical installation about listening: about the sounds under the ground, the sounds you would miss if you didn’t listen for them. Sonic investigators have managed to track an exceptional auditory occurrence, which they have discovered runs under much of Britain.

Be part of something extraordinary by building a huge and spectacular six-storey tower of freedom, revel in the glory of what you’ve created, then join in the celebration of bringing it back down to earth. French artist Olivier Grossetête created The People’s Tower concept and has worked in locations around the world – including at Glastonbury Festival and Marseilles European Capital of Culture 2013 – to build giant cardboard structures with the help of thousands of people, before the buildings are brought down again in mass celebration. We’ll need your help, be there and be the pioneers of the build. We’ll begin the monumental build on Saturday and then we’ll need you to return on Sunday at 11:30am with a special Freedom Festival offer of added awesome entertainment around the gardens for all. Let’s come together to complete and celebrate this one off special festival event.

British Sea Power

Sat, 3 Sept

Music

This highly acclaimed six-piece band have some remarkable admirers (Lou Reed and David Bowie were among them; London’s National Maritime Museum another). In a BBC 6 Music poll on the most important hundred songs of the station’s lifetime, voters placed the British Sea Power track ‘Remember Me’ at number nine – just above Radiohead, just below Johnny Cash. British Sea Power have played atop the Great Wall of China, deep inside Cornish slate mines, at the Chelsea Flower Show and beside the diplodocus skeleton at London’s Natural History Museum. Revered as one of the UK’s best bands, they bring their ‘stadium sized melodies and exquisite song-writing’ to Freedom Festival for the very first time.

The shows will get busy so arrive in plenty of time to get a good spot. Entry to some shows may close before their listed start times if they reach capacity. Our Freedom Ambassadors will be on hand across the festival weekend to help direct you to where you need to be and our handy info booth is located on Queen Street.

A helping hand

There’s a handy map on page 58 and what’s on listings on pages 48-57 to help guide you around the festival. You can also plan your visit by visiting freedomfestival.co.uk/ whatson

Be considerate to your fellow festivalgoers: be aware of people around you and sit down where you can so everyone can get a decent view.

Always arrive early for the shows
