Absolutely Cultured is delighted to be partnering with the BBC and Wrecking Ball Press to produce the return of the national poetry and spoken word festival Contains Strong Language in late September.

The best of local, national and international poets, spoken word artists, comedians and musicians will be commissioned as part of this packed programme taking place in venues across the city. The festival will deliver a wide ranging, diverse programme to audiences enjoying the live experience in Hull, but also many more across the country via the BBC broadcasts.

As part of this exciting programme Absolutely Cultured is commissioning a special new site-specific piece, which will offer the audience a playful journey of discovery through the city, animated by poets, wordsmiths and artists.


If you have purchased a ticket for an event/activity at this venue through hull2017.co.uk, please do not contact the venue direct with enquiries for that purchase as they will be unable to help.
