A brand new health and fitness show is coming to Hull this Spring.
The Sport, Health and Fitness Show will be hosted at the Bonus Arena on Saturday, 25 May.
The event will demonstrate a wide variety of sports and fitness clubs and build on the passion of sport across the region. It will allow visitors the chance to learn about and even try their hand at new sports, learn about nutrition, pick up new sportswear and equipment and even meet and hear from some great sporting personalities and influences.
Tickets for the event are completely free. Confirmed to appear so far are Hull FC and Hull KR, Hull City Ladies football team and Tommy Coyle with many more to be announced.
Tommy Coyle said: “Hull has special place in my heart – the people who live here have been good to me, not only have they supported me in victory but they have continued to support in defeat also. I like to give back in numerous ways to the city as a thank you and one of those ways is ensuring that all kids under 17 have free access to my academies. Our health and wellbeing is so important but a lot of people don’t quite understand how important it is. Health is wealth.”
Bonus Arena is a state-of-the-art, music and events complex with a capacity of up to 3,500 people that will allow Hull to attract large corporate conferences, exhibitions and trade tours as well as major touring concerts, stand-up comedy, family shows and sporting events. The plans include the building of the new arena, alongside the rebuilding of Osborne Street car park and additional public spaces in a currently derelict area on Myton Street behind Princes Quay shopping centre. The arena is scheduled to open during the summer of 2018. The building is owned by Hull City Council and will be managed by SMG Europe, a world leader in venue management, operation and marketing with more than 220 venues worldwide, including Manchester Arena, Metro Radio Arena Newcastle, First Direct Arena Leeds, The Baths Hall and The Plowright Theatre Scunthorpe.
