Hull’s first lady of soul and jazz shares her musical journey, celebrating the women who’ve influenced her, from Aretha Franklin to Chaka Khan to Ella Fitzgerald and a few surprises. Supported by members of the HU massive (Pearl’s Cab Ride, Bossa Revisita, Young Jack, Funkin’ Hot Horns and vocalist Marie Rickard), Lyn Acton brings us the songs that have had an impact on her life and career in music.
A pioneering theatre with a unique Northern Voice, locally rooted, global in outlook, inspiring artists, audiences and communities to reach their greatest potential. We produce and present inspiring theatre that reflects the diversity of a modern Britain. We provide the resources, space and support to grow people and ideas, are an ambassador for our city, a flagship for our region and a welcoming home for our communities. Through our work with schools and local communities we engage with thousands of young people, disabled groups and adults, offering opportunities to participate in the arts, whether as the first step into a career, a way to build confidence and meet new people, or as part of a rounded education.
