Trinity Live returns to Hull tonight.

5 FREE things to do in Hull this weekend

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
Trinity Market
Thursday 5 March
Free

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.

The event is curated by Sesh Events and funded by Hull City Council. This week’s outing will showcase many of the bands who will be playing at the Humber Street Sesh this year alongside amazing local artists. Learn more here.

2. Maritime at the Minster

Brynmor Jones Library, University Of Hull
From Friday 6 March (Wednesday-Monday 10am-5pm, Tuesday 10am-7pm)

Annabel McCourt will place a replica of a drone control station in the gallery for visitors to interact with. This installation plays devil’s advocate, challenging our ideas around power and control.

Are we completely detached from the wider world, more insulated, less connected, fragmented or are we ultimately in charge? Learn more here.
