Having fun: A photographic exhibition of leisure and entertainment in Hull through the years

Leisure is an important factor in the promotion of a healthy and balanced lifestyle and taking part in recreational activities has been found to improve both physical and mental wellness and can enhance our quality of life.

A member of staff thought it would be interesting to see how people in Hull have spent their leisure time over the years. Opting solely for photographs they hope to provide a really engaging and visual social history of leisure in our city enabling visitors to draw comparisons with their own leisure activities of today.

Pulling together photographs from our collections, the exhibition provides a glimpse at how people of Hull have spent their leisure time over the years. From participating in sports, enjoying the city’s parks, to visiting the city’s more seasonal attractions such as Hull Fair, the exhibition touches upon aspects of ordinary lives at least some of which will have been enjoyed by almost everyone living in the city.

We hope that these photographs will invoke memories and help you to reflect upon your own leisure activities, perhaps even inspiring you to try something new.
