Freedom Festival 2013
As Freedom Festival draws closer new festival directors Walk the Plank, the team have devised this year’s Freedom Festival programme working with local contributors and the weekend is set to be packed with amazing events – highlights so far include:
A UK-exclusive performance of Les Tambours de la Muerte from French pioneers of modern street theatre, Transe Express, who have wowed audiences across the globe with their awe-inspiring works of performance, art, circus, music and fire. A spectacular opening night that will feature a torchlight procession of 600 local torchbearers moving throughout the city centre culminating in a spine-tingling rendition of Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have A Dream’.
The opening night event will also bring the live Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show to Hull for the first time to get audiences up on their feet! The TV and radio star has received widespread acclaim for the ‘feel good’ effect of his live shows which unite music lovers of all ages, as featured on his popular BBC Radio 6 Music show.
