There Should Be Unicorns
Rules are made to be broken, so 11-year-old Jasmine is going to break them all. And be back in time for tea.
Hip hop, dance and theatre collide in this new outdoor musical from Middle Child, in association with Beats Bus.
Join Jasmine on an adventure to make the world a better place, powered only by her imagination and a belief in unicorns.
Come dressed as the superhero version of yourself and help Jasmine take on the bullies, villains and ideas that shape the world around her.

There Should Be Unicorns is supported by Wykeland Group, Without Walls, Freedom Festival Arts Trust, Hull City Council, Foyle Foundation and Garfield Weston.
All tour dates in 2022 will include BSL-interpreted performances.
