The title of UK City of Culture is awarded every four years to a city that demonstrates belief in the transformational power of culture. In 2017 it’s Hull’s turn, and as a Principal Partner we’ll be shining a spotlight on the awe-inspiring experiences the year will bring and celebrating this chance to show our unique city at its best.
Hull Truck Theatre kicks things off with A Christmas Carol, Früit gets a lairy-tale makeover with Cinderella, Peter Pan plays at Hull's New Theatre and Bridlington Spa takes audiences on a Christmas carpet ride in Aladdin.
The four shortlisted artists for the 2017 Turner Prize, one of the world’s most renowned art prizes, will exhibit their work at Ferens Art Gallery from September with the overall winner announced in early December.
To celebrate the start of what will be an amazing year for our unique city, sign up for our KCOM Culture e-newsletter below for opportunities to win Hull 2017 goodies throughout the year. ***Please note due to unprecedented demand, we have run out of cream phone box keyrings.*** We're still offering plenty of prizes and giveaways throughout the rest of the year - please register to hear about all other great, upcoming opportunities.
