Engaging, innovating, connecting and surprising! Back to Ours brings outstanding arts and cultural experiences right to people’s doorsteps in neighbourhoods across Hull. Using the city’s high streets, schools, community centres, clubs, shopping centres, pubs and more, we support the commissioning, production, creation and touring of new, original and inspirational work. We engage local people as audiences, participants, creators and commissioners, and bring the arts to life in familiar settings as they’ve never been seen before.
We’re all about engaging new audiences in the arts, so we’re interested in work that captures, resonates, asks questions, excites and/or gives people a good night out. We’re not genre-specific within dance-if it engages and excites, we’re here for it and always open to chat about new ideas.
In the past, we've programmed Avant Garde Dance’s Fagin’s Twist as part of a half-term festival and worked with a local dance school in our site-specific punk pop circus opera Back to Bransholme. We also run weekly movement classes in our Bransholme Chat Shop. Overall we’re about giving opportunities to see and participate in exciting work and supporting local artists.
Please see our website for more details about what we offer.

North Point Shopping Centre,
Freedom Festival is a large-scale international festival, creating an ever-changing stage for artists and performers worldwide in a diverse range of spaces in Hull.
Freedom prides itself on the variety and quality of all work presented. We’re a colourful chameleon showcasing talent and wonder, offering ticketed and free theatre, dance, contemporary circus, sideshows, audio walks, music and art exhibitions, alongside digital programmes of films, podcasts and talks online.
Since 2007, we’ve presented dance ranging from spectacular aerial dance work to multiple contemporary dance performances with award-winning UK artists such as Motionhouse, Company Chameleon and Joseph Tsoonga company to ground-breaking international dance companies such as Liquid Loft, Hurrycan and Cie Dyptik. We’ve produced multiple participatory dance works featuring members of our local communities including RISE working with Southpaw Dance.
We encourage everyone to get involved and be a part of the festival with its drop-in, drop-out feel as we work hard to seek the most exciting, innovative and meaningful artists across all programmes we deliver. Hull audiences are amongst the most enthusiastic, brave and generous audiences in the world and deserve the most exciting work we can bring to the city, no matter where it’s from…
