It's been penciled in to take place in Hull, UK, during August 2019. There'll be groups of, unpaid, costumed people, who will walk round, interacting with the visiting public and I've had inquiries about this from members of the talent agency "Star Now" and I'll be looking for people, willing to put them up, for between 1-4 nights. There'll be competitions for best costumes and I've already received prize donations of, 2 personally signed photos from John Carpenter (Hollywood producer, writer, director and composer) and 4 prints, from French Artist and Illustrator Jean Baptiste Monge and I am also looking for more prize donations. There will be pitches, for attractions and traders, (fees TBC), which will be paid to the Hull City Council and I have "Titan the Robot", as a penciled in guest and I've got a list of interested entertainers. I am searching for funding or sponsorship, to cover all costs, such as, the hiring of the location/s, entertainers & guests and legal costs (PLI)

What we'll deliver:

  • A Fantastical, Magical Festival
  • Fun Filled Events and Activities
  • Entertainers, Performers and Guests

Why it's a great idea:

To allow people of all ages, to let their hair down and have an enjoyable and affordable time, with like minded people, from across the city and from the wider community.

Steps to get it done:

  • To provide an entry free annual festival.
  • Provide a Kickstart for local community and private businesses and entertainers.
  • To provide creative activities and links to local creative groups and projects.
  • To provide activities for all ages and family groups.

This a a free to enter event, making it affordable to all and with it being in the centre of Hull, it will allow easier access from all areas of the city.
