In Conversation With… Mikey Martins

Mikey Martins is the Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Freedom Festival. The annual festival is an explosion of creativity in Hull city centre, celebrating our city’s independent spirit and historic contribution to the cause of freedom through artistic and cultural expression.

We speak to the Cornishman to find out about his love of the sea, his cultural icons, and how the festival explores the idea of freedom.
