The Witching Hour

Two amazing locations, each using culture to breathe energy into place and connect communities, are coming together to create a brand new touring spectacle.

In 2019, whilst Absolutely Cultured continues to build on the success of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, Wirral will become Liverpool City Region’s 2019 Borough of Culture.

In celebration of these parallels a brand-new, large scale outdoor performance is being created to be presented in these two locations in 2019.

Building on the model of Hull 2017’s hugely successful flagship community engagement project, Land of Green Ginger, this co-commission is designed to connect people and inspire imagination and curiosity. The performance will take inspiration from the unique characteristics of each place, weaving a story between the three and working with local communities and artists to inspire the creative direction.

A unique and shared experience for audiences across the country – connected by culture, imagination and curiosity.

Further details of the project will be announced soon.


Hull and Wirral.

Further details will be announced in 2019.
