Hull Street Food Nights will return to its ‘spiritual home’ in the city’s Trinity Square when it starts up again in April.
The hugely popular festival of local produce and delicious dishes launched in the stunning square two years ago before moving to Zebedee’s Yard.
More than 30 vendors will set up near Trinity Square on Thursday 4 April, serving authentic food inspired by cuisines from across the world, featuring options for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs across all tastes and budgets.
The festival takes place on the first Thursday of the month from April to September from 4pm to 9pm.
Live music, a DJ set from Mark Page of Humber Street Sesh, fire-breathers and jugglers will entertain visitors, while a branded rickshaw will ferry people between the transport interchange and Trinity Square.
Events will also take place inside Trinity Indoor Market, where many operators originated at Hull Street Food Nights. Hull Minster will provide seating and shelter for visitors.
HullBID executive director Kathryn Shillito said: “We expected a few thousand people and about 13,000 turned up.
“We had a rethink, we regrouped and we got it right by moving to Zebedee’s Yard and Princes Dock Street, but Trinity Square is the spiritual home and we have worked really hard with Hull City Council to ensure we can return there.”
On Thursday 8 August, the festival will becomes the curtain-raiser for the two-day Yum! Festival and will be accommodated in Queens Gardens and The Rose Bowl. The Yum! Festival takes place on Friday 9 August and Saturday 10 August from 11am to 7pm.
