Hull’s Assemble Fest and The Cautionary Tale of Horrid Ham Carver

Assemble Fest will be taking over the Newland area for the second time this May bank and it looks like we’re all in for a great weekend! The festival is all about celebrating the local businesses of Newland Avenue through theatre. As I live and work in the local area (TheHull Pie2 – which of course is Newland’s finest takeaway), I am particularly excited for the show that is about Pies – The Cautionary Tale Of Horrid Ham Carver. The show takes place behind Pie in The Rosebery Gardens and promises to be a ‘a contemporary twist on [the] gruesome Dickens classic’. Also across the weekend we’ll get to see buskers, magicians, puppet shows and even get our faces painted! So why not pop along, grab a Pie and enjoy the show!


The Cautionary Tale of the Horrid Ham Carver takes place on Saturday 23 May 2015. 1:15pm*, 2:45pm, 4:15pm, 5:45pm, 7:15pm (*part of Happy Hour – first come, first served, pay what you feel)

TICKETS: £3.00 on the day, available from the box office inside the Community Church. PLEASE NOTE: Age suitability 12+

There are also a whole range of other shows from theatres: Bellow TheatrePinUpRoundThe Roaring GirlsSilent Uproar, and Open Umbrella in association with Apus Productions.
