Sharing ‘The Hubbub Way

In 2022 Hubbub delivered Hubbub Way training workshops to over 100 creative professionals & creative arts students with 100% positive feedback.
One university tutor called it ‘essential training’.
We delivered a longer training programme for 10 creative practitioners, leading to a co-creative sharing of work at Derby Museum of Making at The Silk Mill.
This had huge impact on practice & one person said it was ‘life changing’

One participant said ‘All dance/drama facilitators should experience #HubbubWay  for creating an inclusive space & advocating co-creation’

Hubbub are delighted to bring our sellout Derby Feste show to our home venue Deda!

Friday 17th and Saturday 18th February

 at Déda, 19 Chapel Street, Derby

The Drum is a story of a boy whose heart’s desire is to have a drum and the adventure he goes on to find one. Guided by Agents of Kindness, he meets characters in need and finds ways to share, connect and support others – will his own dream come true? Exciting, accessible visual, physical theatre with live music and a party for everyone at the end. Watch out for Agents of Kindness in the building before and after the show, bunting making and badge making too. Celebrating love for ourselves, our community and our planet. A heartful event to lift your February.
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.

‘I’d 100% recommend this to families, children, students… it is really for everybody.’ Audience member of ‘The Drum’
