We are starting this weekend’s events a day early with tonight’s terrific Trinity Live in the Old Town, which will again feature the city’s finest talent plus selected acts from across the country.
Keep it musical with a free folk concert at the Hull Minster or enjoy an art attack at a couple of the city’s fine galleries. And do it all without picking a penny from your pocket.
Here are 5 things to do in Hull this weekend.
1. Trinity Live
Thursday 5 March
It’s the return of this hugely successful weekly live music event, which last year brought thousands of extra people into the market on Thursday evenings. The event gives a platform to many of the city’s bands and performers.
Are you ready for the return of great live music and great food?
We are currently preparing for the return of TRINITY LIVE @TrinityMarket1 tonight!
Enjoy the music of @pearlscabride
Sarge and @DiveBand – treat yourself to some delicious food & drink!
