Your weekly events round-up starts early this week.
With plenty happening in Hull on Thursday, our weekend is now four days long, starting with the excellent Trinity Live, which showcases not only some fantastic unsigned bands but also some of the city’s best street food, craft beer and shopping.
Here are 5 things to do in Hull this weekend … and on Thursday:
1. Trinity Live
This great weekly event, organised by those behind the Humber Street Sesh, features live music provided by up-and-coming acts and local artists.
Many of the food and drink outlets, craft beer sellers and shopping stalls at one of the Old Town’s best spots will also be open. Learn more here.
2. Wild Challenge Trail with RSPB
Museums Quarter Gardens
Our natural world is facing unprecedented challenges with habitat loss having a significant impact on many of our much loved species.
The RSPB will be at our Museums Quarter on every Thursday during August. Come along to take part in a free wild challenge trail and chat with RSPB staff about how everyone can give nature a home, no matter how big or small the garden, 11am-3pm. pic.twitter.com/b4MIsvX9gp

3. Reflection: British Art in an Age Of Change
Ferens Art Gallery
This major partnership exhibition features more than 120 artworks, drawn jointly from the Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art and the Ferens collection. A number of Ferens works are rarely seen treasures, including watercolours, prints and drawings less often on public display due to their fragility to light.
This Friday evening we’re having a special preview of our next exhibition, Reflection: British Art in an Age of Change.
It will be taking place from 6pm-8pm. If you’d like to come along you can book a free ticket here

Reflection presents a dynamic and diverse vision of Britain and British art, which asks questions about identity and belonging. Learn more here.
4. Permaculture Workshop

Join artist and grower Andrea Ku to learn about permaculture.
It’s #NationalAllotmentsWeek, a perfect time to ask questions like how do you grow crops in small spaces?
