Widespread support for Hull BID’s City of Culture food nights

17 February 2017

Foodies in Hull can try some of the city’s food all at once when new Hull Street Food Nights launch in April.

Set to take place around the newly revamped Trinity Square, the food and music fiesta will largely use locally sourced food from places like Hull Pie and The Head of Steam pub.

Hull Business Improvement District (Hull BID) are launching to help the city centre’s late night economy.

Hull BID marketing and Events Co-ordinator Catherine Goble said:

“We’re hoping to bridge the gap between when people go home from work, and come out for the evening.”

Yates duty manager Emma Jordan said it was a very good idea, after the new pub suffered a drop in trade: “Our trade has dropped in the last few months so yes I think it’s a good idea.”

The street food events will run once a month, between 4pm and 9pm in Trinity Square from April to September.

There will not just be food available as part of this initiative, with Hull BID promising attractions such as live music and street theatre, amongst others, to attract more people.

Local resident Colin Bell also thinks it’s a great idea:

“I think it’s going to be good for the local economy, so that’s got to be a good thing.

“I’m particularly looking forward to more entertainment, we already have a few festivals here, so something more regular is very welcome as far as I’m concerned.”
