Hull, UK city of culture?

Jump to last reply

I was there yesterday and today http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-25008856 the city was declared city of culture after beating off strong competition from Leicester, Dundee and Swansea Bay (laughter heard in the wings)

Still on a positive note

Ferens Art Gallery was small but lovely http://www.visithullandeastyorkshire.com/thedms.aspx?dms=13&campaign=3977&feature=1&GroupId=2&venue=2175723&easi=true
