An exquisite and intimate evening as the ﬁrst ladies of jazz are brought to life by today’s leading ladies of vintage jazz, led by Hideaway’s musical director Janette Mason. Vimala Rowe, last seen at Hull Jazz Festival in 2018, is one of the most distinctive voices on the UK jazz scene. Juliet Roberts is known to many as a house music diva, incredible jazz vocalist and a veteran of the early days of British soul. Together, they’re a vocal force to be reckoned with, as they pay tribute to two of the jazz world’s leading ladies.

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.
