Freedom Festival


Freedom Festival Arts Trust celebrates, through artistic and cultural expression, Hull’s independent spirit and historic contribution to the cause of Freedom. The festival grew out of bicentenary commemorations in Hull in 2007 of William Wilberforce’s Act of Parliament which abolished the slave trade in the British Empire. An overriding commitment to articulating the ethos of freedom throughout the festival and across our work is what sets it aside from other comparable events, creating a unique experience for artist and audience alike.
