The Flare Hub is the centre point for our festival. Here, we will hold our daily feedback sessions, there is space to discuss ideas and socialise, and we will meet here shortly before each performance to set off together. The Flare Hub will be open between 10am and 6pm and refreshments can be purchased from the café /bar.
