The UK City of Culture is a chance to celebrate a city’s unique qualities and open its cultural life to the rest of the world. Hull is the City of Culture for 2017 and the city's creative life has spilled out beyond the walls of its galleries and theatres to fill public spaces with events, festivals and cultural activity. We look at some of the highlights from the Hull 2017 programme and discover a vibrant city, boundless creativity and artistic excellence that will put Hull firmly on the map.
