Cultural highlights 5 – 11 November

This week in Hull there’s a bit of everything available with a whole spectrum of events focusing on arts, music and history. There are showings of the best the local and national arts communities have to offer with multiple theatre productions from big-name shows to more bohemian stagecraft as well as some compelling indie film choices. If this isn’t for you there are many other events such as a selection of uplifting comedy available all throughout the city. Or, at the other end of the spectrum, experience a thought provoking tribute to past conflicts and the armed forces commemorating 100 years since Armistice. Also available is a bite-sized cultural trip to satisfy your desire for a return to the ‘good ol’ days’, or an evening of world class stagemanship at the new Hull arena.
