Our way of working creatively with access and kindness at the heart.

Our wonderful new outdoor structure ‘Hetty Hex’, which 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.
Our Hubbub DJ’s & Hetty Hex are available to hire for your own party, festival or event. 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.
