The red container does not look at all special when all its secrets are closed up inside, but on the morning of an event day, there is always a sense of childish excitement amongst us as we open up Red’s doors. The transformation is spectacular as the doors open wide onto a purpose built stage area, but even more so when the community comes together for some live music or poetry. Recently, world slam poetry champion, Harry Baker, chose our red container venue to kick off his UK tour.
Always alcohol free, there is a unique atmosphere that seems to resonate from Rooted, whenever we host an event. The place seems to explode into life, revealing two distinct identities from one day to the next. One being a place of peace and tranquillity where you can help us with the gardening, the other, a vibrant hive of activity providing access to some of Hull’s best cultural, historical and musical talents.
