Bond 31 Launch Party

Since saying goodbye to our beloved former home, Darley’s, in 2020 we’ve been busy building a new space for freelance arts workers in Hull and the East Riding to come together to dream, create, play, make and socialise.

After a long pandemic-induced wait, we’re finally ready to open our doors and hand it over to you to fill with ideas, heart and energy.

Come and join us at our new HQ, Bond 31 on the High Street in Old Town, for a special launch event.

We’ll show you what we’ve been working on, hear your thoughts on what else we could offer and put an end to the Zoom quiz era with a good old fashioned pub quiz. And maybe some karaoke if we can dig out the old machine.

It’s a great chance to catch-up with old friends, meet new freelancers and begin making plans for how you want to use our new space.

Quiz teams will be made of up to six people. If you don’t have enough people for a team, then no problem, we’ll find you some comrades.

You’ll also be able to sign-up for our new and improved theatre library, scout out our free-to-hire rehearsal space and writing room and prop-up our makeshift bar, serving alcohol and soft drinks.

If you can’t make this event, worry not, our new space opens to the public from Tuesday 14 June, so pop-in and we’ll be more than happy to show you around.
