5 things to do in Hull this weekend

Comedy comes to one of the city’s coolest spots for the first time tonight – Trinity Market has already proved it is the perfect spot for music and it will now show it’s a great place for laughs too.

Hull also hosts an evening with an Archbishop, an up-and-coming comedian, some great theatre and a flea market.

Here are 5 things to do in Hull this weekend.

1. Trinity Laughs
Trinity Market
Friday 13 March 7pm
From £8

For the first time, Trinity Market will play host to some of the region’s finest comedians.

The line-up includes some of the region’s finest talent including comedian Cal Halbert, one half of Britain’s Got Talent’s The Mimic Men, and Andy Woolston, who captivates audiences with tales of vibrant misanthropy and his bumbling adulthood. Learn more here.

2. Awaken – An Evening With Archbishop John Sentamu
Hull Minster
Friday 13 March 7.30pm

Seating is unreserved. Doors open at 6:45pm with refreshments available. Book here.

3. Two
Hull Truck Theatre
Until Saturday 28 March
£26

The landlord and landlady have lived their lives in the pub, where all of humankind passes through and everybody – young or old, happy or sad – has a story to share. On this busy night, the tills are singing but it’s their marriage that might be on the rocks. Pull up a stool and join the regulars amongst the humour and heartbreak that’s found at the bottom of a glass. Recommended age 12 and over. Get tickets here.

4. Craft & Flea Hull
Hull Minster
Saturday 14 March 11am

Craft & Flea is the best of the city’s local produce served up with street food and flea market stalls offering vintage products and collectables. Learn more here.

5. Siobhan Phillips: Live And Unhinged
Hull City Hall Mortimer Suite
Saturday 14 March 7.30pm
£19.50

Siobhan wowed audiences as the only female finalist in Britain’s Got Talent 2019. Described as “the love child of Peter Kay and Victoria Wood”, her hilarious self-penned songs really struck a chord with the nation who could totally relate to a selection of her observational daft ditties.


She covers subjects from becoming a first-time Mum at 40, tantrum throwing toddlers and the frustrations of mother daughter relationships. Get tickets here.
