Made up of a combination of giant inflatables and freestanding obstacles designed to test your strength, speed, balance and agility, City Ninja promises to be an adrenaline-charged experience. Suitable for anyone over 1.3m tall, you can participate as a group, with your family or by yourself.
City Ninja Hull is taking place on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 November at Airco Arena.
The Beautiful Couch
Emulating the sound of two of Hull's finest and most popular exports, The Beautiful South and The Housemartins, this tribute band first formed back in 2002, playing all over the country. They built up a loyal following and a huge reputation in the tribute band world, going on to play venues such as Liverpool's Cavern Club, the Matthew Street Festival and the KCOM Stadium in Hull.
After taking a few years off, The Beautiful Couch returned for a one-off gig at Hull City Hall in May 2012. Such was the demand for the band to return, they decided to grab their instruments and return to the stage for good, and the fans flocked to see them.
Make sure you get your tickets early and don't miss what promises to be a great night of live music at The Welly on Friday 30 November.
Are you alright mate?
This is a half-day workshop focused on looking at men's mental health, aimed at general members of the public and health professionals. The session will explore ways in which we can encourage more open talk about the issue, and get the message out there that it's ok for men to not be okay.
The event offers an opportunity to hear a range of local thought-provoking speakers, plus a visiting keynote speaker with a particularly powerful message.
Are you alright mate? takes place on Tuesday 13 November in the Kingsley Suite at the University of Hull.
