Part memorial, part celebration, part protest, get involved with the resistance with Don’t Wait Up!

Together with women from Hull, Don’t Wait Up will shine a light on the ongoing issue of women’s safety as the night draws in.

Audiences will have the opportunity to have their voices heard, grab a cocktail and maybe some food, dance and express themselves in the wonderful surroundings of Streetlife Museum and Freedom Gardens.
