Spin Festival 2011

Brighten up your January with a day of art, drama, music, photography and poetry  in the centre of Hull!


People across Hull are invited to a unique festival of celebration at Hull Truck Theatre on Friday 14 January, 10am – 3pm. The event is free and open to everyone.

Hull City Council’s Supporting People Programme has joined up with the theatre to put on this event, where people who access their services will be sharing their personal journeys through drama, music, poetry, photography, art and short stories.

Supporting People helps vulnerable people in Hull to live independently and access support services to help them engage with activities.

Councillor Stephen Baker, Portfolio Holder for Adult Care, said:

“This event will be a unique chance to get an insight into the lives of people in Hull who have been helped by Supporting People which shows their journey and the positive outcomes they have achieved.”

The people involved are part of the Supporting People User Involvement (SPIN) Group who have accessed support services and help shape the service for other people.

The event is free and open to everyone to enjoy the exhibits and visit the provider stalls; however to see the performances between 10am – 12 noon and 1 – 3pm you will need a ticket. To book your place contact the Supporting People Team on 01482 331 007.
