Food festival’s success shows new hunger for special events…

This week saw the first Hull Street Food Festival draw in over ten thousand people, who filled the newly refurbished, regenerated and revitalised Trinity Square and made a part of town that has for many years been neglected, feel vibrant and exciting. The bustling festival was just the latest in a long line of events and exhibitions in recent months that showed how far Hull has come, and how far it is going as a result of being named City of Culture.

Another week, another plethora of cultural and creative goodies to be found across the city. Seeing the iconic Dead Bod on public display in the newly opened Humber Street Gallery is wonderful. It looks great in its new home where people are now able to fully appreciate the piece that has grown to represent Hull’s past, and future so well. Not bad for a piece of graffiti scrawled on some old corrugated steel.
