Hull, the UK City of Culture, is once again coming alive as preparations get underway for this weekend's Freedom Festival which begins on Friday 31 August.
This is the festival's 11th year and the legacy of William Wilberforce have never been stronger.

With performances by leading UK companies Full Tilt Aerial, New York hip hop band The Jungle Brothers and Hull's biggest homegrown community feast - enjoy the freedom of the last weekend of the summer holidays!
