Hull - UK City of Culture 2017
Hull is the UK City of Culture 2017 and the party has arrived! We opened our year with a huge fireworks display and an emotional series of installations called "Made in Hull". Now "Blade" has taken its place in Queen Victoria Square. This 75m long installation appeared overnight to suprise the city and will remain inplace until March. Looking ahead we have The Hypocrite at Hull Truck Theatre. A comedy written by Richard Bean and performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company The Hypocrite tells the story of actions of John Hotham to turn away King Charles I at Beverley gate. Also at Hull Truck is Shakespeare's Richard III directed by Barrie Rutter. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are playing John Williams film scores at Hull City Hall and the Opening of the newly refurbished Ferens Gallery.
The word is out and events are selling out fast, Hull really is the destination of the year.
Stay tuned as season 2 "Routes and Roots" Season 3 "Freedom" will be announced soon.
Maybe you will be travelling for the Turner, flying in for the Fireworks or staying over for the Sea of Hull. Whatever brings you to Hull in 2017 make sure you take time to explore the city and east yorkshire. We have a great variety of accommodation to call home while you are here.
Everyone back to ours!
