Happy New Year! I hope the first 8 days of 2017 have been treating you well.
You may or may not know that Hull (where I currently live and work) is City of Culture for 2017. There will be a huge range of events happening over the year and I can’t wait! You may have even seen the firework display on the news. I have to say, it was very impressive!
The first event was Made In Hull. Running for a week, it shows the story of a city and its people via a range of installations about the city. Lights, images, sounds, people. What has happened in Hull’s history and what is in store for the future.
I managed to catch the last evening of the light show. There were thousands of people there; dancing, cheering, laughing, welling up. There just was a real sense of community. I’m not from Hull, but even I, the permanent tourist, got caught up in it.
The light show on the City Hall was incredible. I genuinely do not have enough words to describe how moving, emotional and utterly awesome it was. So, I’ve got some pictures for you!
2017. Hull’s story. Be a part of it. Make memories, wherever you are. Tell your story. We certainly are.
Big love xx
