the witching hour

‘Thousands of people were stunned by an event of ‘wonder and magic’ at The Witching Hour this weekend. Thousands of people watched in awe as they witnessed live music and large-scale theatrics moving in and around them.’ Hull Daily Mail

Immerse yourself in spinning tales of alchemy and legend from the East and West, brought to life with spellbinding theatre, magic and wonder. In the hour between twilight and dark, restless souls appear – in the echo of a song, a rumble of thunder, a trick of the light.

They flicker in the treetops and travel through hidden tunnels. West to East, East to West, anchored in the North. From the magical Alleys of East Hull to the Witches Circle in Birkenhead.

These souls take sanctuary in two enchanting parks and keep alive the memories of all that’s gone before.

The Witching Hour is a brand-new outdoor performance commissioned for Hull and Wirral – two amazing locations each using culture to breathe energy into place and connect communities.
