Hull city centre is preparing to explore 13.8 billion years of history as About Us – part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK – rolls into town.
The free open-air event combines live performances and multimedia installations to celebrate the entire history of the universe, from Big Bang to the present day.
Every night for a week, About Us will transform Queen Victoria Square into a vast canvas combining live projection-mapped animation with poetry, music, and beautiful live choral singing from Hull’s very own Freedom Chorus.
About Us, a spectacular, never seen, free open-air event that combines live performances and multimedia installations to celebrate the entire history of the universe from Big Bang to the present day arrives in Hull on 30 April 2022 for one week only as part of its five-stop UK tour.
