On the 24th September, Hubbub’s company returned to live public performance for the first time since 2019 with the premiere of our outdoor theatre-event ‘The Drum’ at Derby Feste.
Presented in our wonderful new outdoor structure ‘Hetty Hex’, we enjoyed sell-out performances, beautiful weather and even a standing ovation in Markeaton Park. The piece was co-created by our Learning Disabled and Autistic company, with support from The Edward Gostling Foundation, Derby Feste, Déda, Reimagine, Derby City Council and our wonderful Hubbub community.
The Drum will be returning early in 2023 so watch this space! If you are interested in bringing The Drum to an outdoor space or festival in Summer 2023 please get in touch via [email protected] Our outdoor structure ‘Hetty Hex’ is also available for hire, reach out for a quote to host with Hetty yourself!
We’re hugely glad and grateful to share that we have also had success with a grant of £15,000 this Autumn from the Foyle Foundation, and £10,000 a year for 2 years from The Garfield Weston Foundation. We’re immensely grateful to the trustees for their generosity, and to be able to support our Learning Disabled and Autistic company members in their professional development and to continue to share Hubbub’s values of kindness with our community.
