It was a rush…

Southpaw RUSH 2017

Well… now the dust has settled we at Southpaw have had time to reflect on the incredible experience that was Rush Hull 2017 and take in some of the feedback from our beautiful volunteer cast and audience members. With our official Promo video on the way (!!!) we wanted to share the thoughts and experiences from some of the 90 strong cast that made Rush Hull a transformative experience for all involved. Thank you to everyone who helped make our time in Hull an unforgettable experience…

“I feel I speak for many in that the biggest change was not any in the show, it was the change to our hearts, the change to our souls, and the change to our lives.”
Ruth Cunliffe

“You bring so much light, life, joy and kindness with you! I know you have changed our lives for the better. Thank you for RUSH Hull. It was a glorious blast!”
Elly Morlin Taylor

“What an amazing event to be a part of. I will remember it for ever and all the wonderful people involved in the whole spectacle. I felt privileged to be even performing in RUSH. I’ve never danced or performed in my life, this was my first experience. I can honestly say every member of the professional group were helpful, encouraging and so friendly to me. I shall never forget Southpaw”
Carol Baldry

“An absolute privilege to have been a part of the community cast for RUSH 2017 for Hull’s Freedom Festival. A massive thank you to Robby and Co for an unforgettable experience.”
