It's Christmas, Jim, but not as we know it...
Embracing the Christmas spirit, numerous administrative and retail bodies have come together to treat the people of Hull to a magical cavalcade of Yuletide activity!
Brought to you by Hull BID and with sleigh-loads of support from Hull City Council, eskimosoup have created a one-stop resource for all things festive in the City Centre: ChristmasInHull.co.uk
Participating venues include Hull City Hall, Holy Trinity Church, Hull Museums, Hull Truck Theatre, Hull New Theatre, Hull Arena, Bonus Arena, Hull University and the three shopping centres, St Stephen's, Princes Quay and the Prospect Centre. And the events are even more varied, from an abseiling Santa to real-life reindeer, Dickensian street characters to traditional fair rides, all surrounded by the warm glow of festive illuminations and the alluring aroma of roast chestnuts and mulled wine.
This is the first time that so many individual departments and firms in Hull have pooled their resources to create a one-stop online diary of events, news and essential Christmastime information, so make sure to keep checking the website and follow the Facebook and Twitter accounts to keep up-to-date with this Advent calendar of excitement!
Oh, and don't forget that the City Centre Lights Switch-on is this Thursday, the 24th November!
