Running from Saturday 22 to Saturday 29 October, a packed programme of maritime themed activities will entertain children of all ages and their families.
This year’s programme will feature in person events as well as some digital content, meaning no one need miss out on the fun.
The city’s rich seafaring history will be brought to life through live theatre performances by local theatre company ‘Theatre on the Edge’ and storytelling sessions ‘Fisherwomen’s Tales of the Sea’ in various library venues across the city.
Head to Hull’s Old Town to check out our Whitefriargate Windowscape, where stories from this historic street’s maritime past are brought to life through a series of custom-made window displays by local artist Alex Hunt. Drawing inspiration from the objects that make up Hull Maritime’s collections and the architecture of Whitefriargate, the window displays invite you to notice and explore the maritime tales hidden all around you – and to get creative yourselves. Pick up an activity sheet from Ferens Art Gallery, the Museum Quarter or businesses along Whitefriargate to join in the fun and enter our window art competition for the chance to win prizes. And remember to look up, down and all around…
