One of the biggest events of the year is set to take place in Queens Gardens.
Inner City Sesh, a 15,000-capacity music festival, will be brought to Queens Gardens by the organisers of Humber Street Sesh, in partnership with Hull City Council.
Following the disappointing cancellation of the hugely popular music and art festival, Humber Street Sesh this year, chiefly due to delays in flood defence work on the Marina, the Sesh Events team are delighted to be given the opportunity to stage Inner City Sesh in Queens Gardens.
Community favourites include: The Silent Disco Marquee; Team Extreme Skate Park, with displays from the experts; Festival Markets for independent traders; a funfair on Guildhall Road; Photo Exhibition, showcasing Hull’s burgeoning music scene; graffiti art, art installations and an array of food choices and bars.
Festival organisers are keen to make the event as environmentally friendly as possible with two solar powered music stages, recycling stations and compostable glasses at the bars.
Queens Dock Avenue,
As part of the Hull Maritime City Project refurbishment work is ongoing within the gardens - due to be completed early 2024. Perfect for an al fresco lunch, a game of football or a leisurely stroll, Queens Gardens is located in the heart of Hull City Centre. Originally the first dock to be constructed in Hull, it was transformed into an picturesque garden space in 1930, lined with trees and ponds with fountains. More recently, Queens Gardens has become host for popular Hull events such as the Freedom Festival and YUM Festival.
