The 2020 Guide To Hull
Happy New Year! This new decade promises exciting things for our home city, so we’ve put together a guide of what’s happening this year for both residents and new visitors, so that everyone in Hull can make the most out of 2020.
1) Get yourself to Hull New Theatre!
There’s some fantastic shows coming to Hull this year, with ‘We Will Rock You’ already been and gone! Get your ABBA on and go see ‘Mamma Mia’, or meet Henry VIII’s wives in ‘Six: The Musical!’
2) Check out Hull’s new Bars and Restaurants
With new bars popping up left right and centre, there’s plenty of new places for you to spend your weekend. Relax and watch the football in the new ‘Tribal II’ bar down Humber Street or sit back with a cocktail in ‘The Treehouse’, Hessle. Wherever you go, you’re sure to love it!
3) Sip a Gin at Hull’s Gin Festival
Join the party atmosphere this September with over 100 selected Gins under one roof. There’ll even be live music, fantastic food and a lot of friendly faces. Held at Hull’s historic Guildhall- this is definitely something to look forward to!
4) For a more kid-friendly activity… Rock Up!
Get the full family together and get the adrenaline pumping at ‘Rock Up’ in St Stephens. Try out the Twister experience, race up the Skyscraper or, if you dare, take on the hair-raising Drop Slide!
5) See the ‘Model City’ installation in February!
From February 19th-23rd, on King Edward Street, there’ll be a 360-degree experience showing the ‘future of Hull through children’s eyes’. Bafta award-winning composer Dan Jones has been working with children from different primary schools across Hull to create the soundscape which showcases the children’s’ hopes and dreams for the future of Hull. Not one to be missed!
6) Drop by Hull’s new £1m go-karting track
The new go-karting arena, opened by TeamSport Indoor Karting at the end of last year, features 2 levels, exhilarating ramps and 40mph straights. Racers can get behind the wheel of 200cc go-karts, with smaller options for the younger drivers. Perfect for the older kids!
7) Take part in Hull Pride
An event that comes to Hull every year, Hull Pride is one of the biggest events for the city, with over 50,000 people attending in 2018 alone. This year it will be held in July, so take the kids, wave a flag. Paint your face. Buy a coffee. March in the parade. Or just go for a nice sunny day out!
8) See the fantastic exhibitions coming to Ferens Art Gallery
The newly refurbished art gallery is hosting a range of exhibitions this year, including the Open Art Exhibition 2020. Whether you’re an artist or not – it’s free entry to the gallery, so what are you waiting for?
9) Take a break and stay at one of Hull’s many hotels
Looking for somewhere to rest your head after a busy day exploring Hull? The new Doubletree Hilton Hotel is situated in the city centre and with it’s own rooftop bar and fine dining restaurant, it’s the perfect place to wind down.
