Hull Connected, a story of rail in Hull.

In partnership with Transpennine Express – The History Troupe are pleased to announce the opening of an new Pop-Up exhibition – Hull Connected, the story of rail in Hull.

The exhibition tells the story of rail in Hull, from the beginnings of the early railways to its development with the docks and beyond – the Roots, Heritage and Future.

There will also be a photographic gallery of images sourced from the Hull Daily Mail archive, featuring some amazing photographs of Hull Paragon Station from the 1940’s down to now.

This free exhibition will open on Friday 3rd of August in Retail Unit (3) on the concourse of Hull Paragon Station (next to Starbucks).

The Charente Exhibition

The main exhibition presents the biographies and wartime exploits of 35 French citizens from the Charente in south-west France. The second exhibition relates the story of ‘Opération Frankton’ a Royal Marines commando mission. This story is more familiar to English audiences as the series of exploits which inspired the making of ‘Cockle-shell heroes’ a 1955 British war film.

The programme includes a series of short lectures followed by a film extract related to the exhibition theme. The first day is aimed towards non-French speakers and will be of special interest to historians, students of politics and European culture. The second day is aimed towards college and sixth form students of French and for those who have an intermediate level of French. The third day is aimed towards undergraduate and post-graduate students of French.

Sponsored by the Ferens Educational Trust. Free admission.

Gavin Prest

18.25.2

View Gavin Prests stunning new photography exhibition in the Carriage House at Burton Constable Stables throughout the Summer.

Gavin Prest started his photography career in 2012 and, having developed a recognisable style for producing narrative based black and white images, he wanted to challenge himself and explore a new avenue of work. Utilising a simple but specific brief and restricting himself to a limited colour palette he started to create the images for 18-25-2. The resulting series has been shot with a single model and created over a limited period of time, using recognisable local architectural venues and a restricted range of photographic equipment.

View his new exhibition in the Carriage House throughout the Summer.

This exhibition is included with normal admission charges.

Portraits at Sea

The characters and stories of Hull’s seafarers are brought to life in this exhibition of portraits by Dan Llywelyn Hall.

During Hull’s City of Culture year in 2017, Dan had numerous sittings with the men who shaped the seafaring industry. Although based in the Merchant Navy club Dan met both fishermen and merchant seamen and heard how occupations changed as a response to the challenging times faced by the city’s maritime community.

An accompanying film documentary by Ann-Marie Conlon shows Dan carrying out the sittings and discussing the lives and roles played by the mariners who formed a vital part of Hull’s social history.

BATTERY BOILER BIKE FRAME LUMBER RAG BONE! BY RUSSELL BOYCE

HIP Gallery (AKA The Hull Independant Photography) has an exceptional new exhibition of photographs from Hull in the early 1980’s. The photographs were shot in West Hull, mainly around Hessle Rd & Woodcock Street by Russell Boyce. At the time Russell was a Hull art student, making the first works of what would become a life-long, worldwide, photographic career. His first prints were displayed in Bob Carvers fish & chip shop. He is now the Middle East and Africa Editor for Reuters Pictures.

“I am delighted to know that after over 30 years, the photographs I shot in Hull can be enjoyed by the community who made them so special, in Hull Independent Photography Gallery”

The exhibition includes photographs from Russell’s earliest photo projects including Living With Blindness, Star & Garter, Stray Dogs & Kandy de Barry. Some photographs were taken when Russell joined a young George Norris on his horse-drawn cart. George has co-curated the exhibition with Alan Raw of HIP Gallery and Russell has named the show after the words George would call as he lead his cart around the West Hull houses; Battery, Boiler, Bike Frame, Lumber, Rag Bone.
