About

The Awakening draws on themes of Hull’s maritime identity, folklore and mythology, taking place around the Spring Equinox in March as we move from Winter to Spring. It’s become a staple in the city’s cultural calendar, welcoming families into the city centre to experience a magical blend of ancient traditions brought to life by atmospheric light installations, sculptures and theatrical street performances. The 2022 edition welcomed 100,000 people back to the streets after the easing of lockdown restrictions, with 2023 building on its success as a winter festival steeped in folklore and tradition.
