What's On

International Hanse Day

12 May 2018

Family Friendly

Join in some medieval merriment, celebrating Hull’s past and present connection with the Hanseatic League in a new location in Trinity Square.

From medieval spinning and weaving, to jester japes and even a ‘Rat Circus’, Hull will be turning the clock back to the 14th century to celebrate the heyday of the medieval trading network. Visitors will be entertained by craftspeople – including papermaking, weaving and arrow making, whilst the Jester aims to wow crowds with shows consisting of fire, juggling, a guillotine…and general silliness!

Working in partnership with Hull Minster, the iconic building will be celebrating the first anniversary of its re-dedicated as a minster by the Archbishop of York in May 2017 with church tours, music, family activities and a Festal Choral Evensong at 4pm.

All this plus market stalls, children’s craft activities, food and our popular staged performance area.
