Freedom Festival - go by bus!

3 months ago Mon 12th Aug 2019

Hull's award-winning Freedom Festival is back for its 12th year, using the wonderful city as its stage.  An arts festival like no other running from Wednesday 28 August until Sunday 1 September.

Artists from across the world will converge in the city to delight, challenge and mystify audiences with jaw-dropping circus, thought-provoking performances, visual arts exhibitions, digital arts, debates and talks, street theatre, music from across the globe and mischievous projects and interventions that will engage all ages.

There are plenty of buses running into Hull from across the region throughout each day with the festival activity taking place all across the City Centre, including Queens Gardens, Trinity Square, Zebedee's Yard and the Fruit Market.  Board or alight the bus at Hull Paragon Interchange or in the City Centre.  Plan your journey now.

Staying late to see the evening events?  We have late night buses to Cottingham, The Avenues, Beverley, Hessle, Willerby, Anlaby, Brough, East Hull, Withernsea and more.

Coming on the Sunday?  From 1 September there will be extra Sunday buses into Hull from Willerby and Hessle, plus our usual regular services from across the region.

Be festival ready – download the East Yorkshire Buses app on the App Store or Google Play for live departure information from your stop and full bus timetables.  No change?  No problem.  Contactless is accepted on all our buses.

Please note, there will be some road closures in place for the festival on Friday evening and Sunday afternoon.  If you are visiting during this time, board and alight at Hull Paragon Interchange.  See our service updates for more info.
