Engage For Change is a free music festival celebrating community, hope, music, arts and activism, hosting a number of bands and artists, stalls and influential speakers.
Echoing the Red Wedge concerts of the 80s, and Glastonbury’s Left Field, the festival aims to bring people together, welcoming a line-up of political minded, community-spirited musicians and performers.
A family-friendly event, there’ll be a number of children’s activities taking place in the family area, some surprises from Hull Carnival Arts, a wide range of political and community activist speakers, stalls and information, and continual live music during the day.
Queens Dock Avenue,
As part of the Hull Maritime City Project refurbishment work is ongoing within the gardens - due to be completed early 2024. Perfect for an al fresco lunch, a game of football or a leisurely stroll, Queens Gardens is located in the heart of Hull City Centre. Originally the first dock to be constructed in Hull, it was transformed into an picturesque garden space in 1930, lined with trees and ponds with fountains. More recently, Queens Gardens has become host for popular Hull events such as the Freedom Festival and YUM Festival.
