The whole weekend is FREE as part of Freedom Hull 2013. Now in its sixth year, Freedom Festival brings renowned national and international artists to Hull, while supporting and helping to grow local and regional talent. The festival celebrates Hull’s independent spirit and contribution to the cause of freedom as the birthplace of MP William Wilberforce, who led the abolition of the slave trade in the British Empire. Freedom Festival is a blend of music, art, comedy, dance, theatre and spoken word, located in Hull’s rapidly-emerging Fruit Market cultural quarter.
