Hull was announced the winner of UK City of Culture 2017 in 2013. The award is given every four years to a city that demonstrates the belief in the transformational power of culture.
To deliver on this promise, Hull City Council set up Hull UK City of Culture 2017 as an independent company and charitable trust. The team are now working hard to deliver 365 days of transformative cultural activity in 2017.
The arts and cultural programme for the year celebrates the unique character of the city, its people, history and geography. In 2017, the programme runs from 1 Jan to 31 Dec and is split into four seasons, each with something distinctive and intriguing to say, and each created to challenge and thrill.
The Port of Hull is one of the UK's leading foreign trading ports and this position is maintained by a constant programme of capital investment in the development of new facilities and services. The port's position on the north bank of the River Humber also provides a major geographical advantage for transport links in to and out of the UK. As a result, the port has very strong short-sea trade links with Europe, Scandinavia and the Baltic, in addition to world-wide deep-sea services. Hull is also well connected to the UK's national motorway network, allowing a market of 40 million people to be reached within a four-hour drive. In addition, there are direct rail connections to the deep-water berths in King George Dock.
The Deep, one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world, is located in Hull, East Yorkshire. This award-winning attraction is home to 3,500 fish including magnificent sharks and rays. The dramatic building, which overlooks the Humber estuary, was designed by world class architects, Sir Terry Farrell and Partners and opened in 2002 in, what was then, one of the most deprived and unfashionable cities in England.
In its first year The Deep welcomed over 850,000 visitors, making Hull’s new aquarium busier than London Zoo. This early success financed a £5 million extension in 2005, which included additional exhibition space, retail, catering and education areas.
As part of the regeneration of Hull The Deep has become an internationally recognised landmark and has even featured on a Royal Mail stamp! The building exploits the landscape on which it is built and was inspired by natural geological land formations. Gleaming glass and aluminium thrust into the dramatic landscape on the confluence of the two rivers marking the historic entry to Kingston upon Hull with a brand new future.
