“Social”, the newly revamped venue on Humber Street, formerly known as Fruit, will open its doors to the public for the first time to enjoy a diverse programme of weekend entertainment with NYC disco sounds of Studio 54, live music and classic cult cinema.
Huey Morgan presents Huey 54 – Saturday April 4 (Ticketed event)
The hugely respected BBC 6 Music DJ, raconteur, author, producer, broadcaster, and frontman of the beloved 90s rock/hip-hop band Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Huey Morgan will be
live at Social for a massive dancefloor party with ‘Huey Morgan presents Huey 54’. Social has set the stage for a Studio 54 inspired night, with mirror ball in place, for a celebratory night of Soul, Funk and NYC Disco classics from Chic, Prince, Stevie Wonder and Cameo, to Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, Diana Ross, Chaka Khan and Donna Summer.
Acoustic Sunday Social – Sunday April 5 (Free event)
Social opens its doors in the daytime, for the chilled-out sounds of Acoustic Sunday, a staple event at the former venue Fruit, that Social is thrilled to bring back to Humber Street.
Acoustic Sunday is un-ticketed and free to enter, with relaxed vibes and spine-tingling acoustic music from the cream of Hull’s music talent. The venue’s bar provides a relaxing destination point to sight-seeing and shopping in Hull’s cultural quarter.
Cult Cinema Sunday – Sunday April 5 (Ticketed event)
The evening of Sunday 5th April marks the welcome return of film favourites Cult Cinema Sunday, who kept Hull audiences entertained for 7 years at Fruit, with the motto “Life’s
too short for bad movies”. Their perfect mix of film screening, quiz, popcorn, prizes, food, drinks and fun atmosphere is back with a bang for their first night at Social, rounding of
the NYC weekend with a screening of the 1970s classic New York-set thriller The Warriors.
The team behind Social also runs the hugely popular annual Humber Street Sesh grassroots music festival, as well as The Sesh weekly music nights and Made in Hull, Trinity Live and Hull City Sesh events. The Sesh Events UK team, say they cannot wait to open the doors to the public so they can come celebrate with them.
