After flying their superhero capes around the country this summer, Jasmine and co. are docking back into the Humber to break the rules allllll over again for Hull’s beloved Freedom Festival. 

The first weekend of the annual arts festival sees our first ever family show, made in association with Beats Bus, land home again after our sold-out opening weekend back in May. 

On Saturday 27 August and Sunday 28 August, Freedom Festival will be hosting our super rainbow fueled hip hop musical at Stage@TheDock, showing at 12pm and 3pm on both days.

The show invites you in to the life of unicorn obsessed 11-year-old Jasmine Littlehorse, who sets out to change her corner of the the world with her secret unicorn abilities and an imagination chock full of magic and mayhem. 

There Should Be Unicorns is a completely free show, and will be an unticketed event as part of the festival. Admission will be on a first come, first serve basis so make sure to get down early on the day to avoid any disappointment. 

All performances include integrated audio description from everyone’s favourite Allicorn Primary teacher, Mr. Lovelyheart, and Sunday’s performances will be BSL interpreted.
