Middle Child Theatre’s Hull City production needs YOU

Some time ago we talked about our collaboration with Middle Child Theatre. This has now moved onto the next stage (excuse the pun) and they now need YOU!

Here’s what Middle Child have to say:

Hull-based theatre company Middle Child would like to warmly invite all Hull City supporters to help us in making a brand new show about the club, its fans and its proud history.

Between November 2015 and January 2016, we will be hosting fortnightly drop-in sessions whereby fans of Hull City can pop by and have a chat with Middle Child’s production team.

We want to hear from you about the highs and lows of supporting the Tigers: what you love, hate or miss; whether it’s for five minutes or five hours, on your own or with friends and family.

Following these sessions, we will be creating a new piece of work that is based on what you have had to say, which will be performed in May 2016 in various spaces across the city. Right now the story is wide open, so we need you to tell us what needs telling.

The sessions, where we will talk through your experiences of supporting the club, will be held every two weeks at different pubs, clubs and spaces around the city. The first will be at The Minerva on the 16th November 2015, between 3pm and 8pm.

We want you to feel a part of this event, from beginning to end. It is your stories that we want to tell, for your friends and families in your communities, though your thoughts and ideas can also be kept anonymous.

What’s more, anyone who speaks to us or completes our online survey will be automatically entered into our prize draw!

Here’s the information again on our first drop-in session:


Venue: The Minerva Hotel, Nelson St, Hull, HU1 1XE (https://goo.gl/maps/PfvcDFQRcdE2)


Date: 16th November 2015

What you need: your stories

If you don’t think you’re going to be able to make it, either to this first session or to later sessions, do feel free to fill in the online survey that can be reached here:
