Come on a journey and meet some of the people who lived and were proud of being ‘Hessle Roaders’. Walk the very same streets they lived and grew up on. In just one hour, you will experience how the families lived every day and the challenges they faced in difficult times but also how they came together as a community to celebrate the happy times.
Many people who grew up on Hessle Road have become names synonymous with fame; Lillian Bilocca, Joe Longthorne, Amy Johnson, Johnny Whiteley & Tom Courtenay to name just a few. Join us and you will come to realise the rich history that surrounds Hessle Road including the family named shops which have withstood the passing years, the churches who have seen many people arrive and depart and the pubs which have provided entertainment throughout the years.
Through the work of Hull Historian, Alex Gill MBE and Artistic Director, Honor Pallant of Spinoff Productions this walk will provide an insightful and informative experience for all to enjoy.
