Humber Mouth Wide Open

The school holidays are nearly over, the weather’s turning and the stress levels are cranked up to critical – it can only mean thing… 


We’re looking forward to a different experience this year, part of a wider literature programme that’s taking over Hull and the East Riding. It kicks off with Contains Strong Language, our sister festival, moving on to Humber Mouth, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Out of this Word and closing with Hull Noir. 

The full Humber Mouth programme is now available for your delectation, with brochures winging their way across Hull as we speak, and you can also peruse events and book tickets online at This year brings Will Self, Sara Pascoe, Monica Ali, Melvyn Bragg, Neil Astley and Sally Gardner – to name but a few – to join us for our 25th anniversary celebrations. 

By October 8, you’ll have laughed, pondered, crumpled, argued, procrastinated and probably googled a lot of stuff – just your average Humber Mouth, then. 

Wrecking Ball Press is also proud to be partners with the BBC in delivery of flagship spoken work festival, Contains Strong Language. Featuring The Unthanks and the haunting music of Molly Drake (mother to Nick Drake), Kate Tempest, Kathryn Williams, Dr John Cooper Clark and many, many more, it’s going to be an fascinating, inspiring weekend of words, voices and passion. 

Book your tickets now – while you can!
