Join Hull Truck Theatre and the Albemarle Music Centre – home of Hull Music Service for a FREE fun-filled event with plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy.
This is your chance to go behind the scenes at two of Hull’s most iconic cultural venues. At Hull Truck Theatre you’ll also be able to enjoy popular tours, where you will be able to stand in the wings or get onstage to get an actors view of the auditorium.
Budding technicians and theatre enthusiasts may fancy getting involved in sound and lighting demonstrations to see how a show comes to life! You can also have your face painted; get arty at the craft table; learn how to make balloon animals; get involved in a storytelling session; try on costumes and have fun in the photo booth, plus much more!
The Albemarle Music Centre will be putting music at the heart of their activities with singing workshops, steelpans, hip-hop DJing, beatboxing, try our session on lots of instruments and tours of their purpose-built home. The City of Hull Friends of Young Musicians will also be on hand with a tombola, raffles, games and craft stalls. There is sure to be something for everyone.
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. During our Year of Exceptional Drama as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 we welcomed a record number of 108,000 audience members at our home in Hull and on tour around the UK. We were thrilled to work with a wide range of internationally renowned artists and companies to stage 13 home-produced plays, including 7 new commissions. We have announced our ambitious equality and diversity plans as part of our commitment to opening up access to all aspects of the theatre. The animation below details how and why we will be ensuring our doors are well and truly flung open to all. It was developed by the theatre’s Inclusion Action Group.
