Hull : City of Culture 2017


Welcome to Hull UK City of Culture 2017

Amidst tough competition from Dundee, Leicester and Swansea Bay, Hull had shown it could host the UK’s next big cultural event by setting out ambitious plans for a unique and thrilling programme of cultural activity, which would excite communities across the city and far beyond. More than anything the city showed that it could deliver a world-class UK City of Culture programme that was so firmly rooted in Hull it could not come from anywhere else.

Culture Company Chief Executive Martin Green announced that preparation is key to making 2017 a huge success.

“The first half of 2015 will be about careful and detailed planning. We will be developing our key strategies, from marketing and partnerships to volunteering and engagement with the cultural sector and the community. By Easter, we will be ready to communicate our plans – and most importantly to highlight how and when people can get involved….”

over 1500 events in just 365 days that are anywhere and everywhere.
