From the 2 to 26 August, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival will see the return of Hull Takeover for the second time, following its success in 2017.
We’re running an exciting competition to win tickets to experience all the shows that make up our Hull Takeover. You’ll get to see four shows by local theatre companies The Herd, Middle Child, The Roaring Girls and Just Club in one day on Monday 19 August in Edinburgh. You’ll be accompanied by Hull natives who will make sure you get from one venue to another, and you will also receive a gift bag containing some goodies from our city.
If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also win a pair of tickets to see acrobats Casus Circus, commissioned by Back to Ours, on the following day. That’s five shows for free!
How to Enter
Absolutely Cultured’s Hull Independent Producer Initiative, in partnership with Middle Child, supported by Hull Truck and Back to Ours, are supporting shows from five highly acclaimed theatre companies from Hull. These include The Herd, Middle Child, The Roaring Girls, Just Club and international acrobats Casus Circus, commissioned by Back to Ours.
