For the original new Hull play “LIL” written by Val Holmes, we took our LIL’S LASSES out on the street to remember what some of the original campaigners, lead by LIL BILOCCA, did in 1968. Namely, a 500 woman silent march down Hull’s famous Hessle Road and a protest at St. Andrew’s Dock to stop trawlers leaving without a radio operator. Following their actions, it is estimated that thousands of lives, from fishing dependent communities were saved. But Lil Bilocca paid a price.

LIL the Play, is being performed at Jubilee Central, Hull. 6-11th November, 2017.

Tickets are available from or Gough & Davy, (under the Hull City Hall) & Female Ego, Hessle Road.
