Hull has a host of art galleries including the world’s only Museum of Club Culture, which is just a stone’s throw from the award winning Ferens Art Gallery - the jewel in Hull’s city centre art crown. The Ferens recently hosted “Skin” which included world renowned photographer Spencer Tunick’s “Sea of Hull” a collection, featuring over 3,000 blue nudes representing the sea.

Beverley Races © Michael Hopps

ONLY HERE FOR THE CULTURE? OR IS IT FOR THE SPORT? We wouldn’t blame you! “You’re only here for the culture” is one of the more unusual football chants sung by Hull City AFC fans on the terraces. If football’s not your game, we’ve got two top rugby league clubs – Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers – so why not visit a match and treat your VIPs to some corporate hospitality. While you’re here, there might be time to try out some of our excellent golfing facilities, if you want to organise a delegate golf day, you will be spoilt for choice with excellent courses at Cave Castle Hotel & Country Club, and KP at Kilnwick Percy. Or spend a day at the races cheering on your favourite horses at Beverley Racecourse.

THEATRE, FESTIVALS AND LIVE EVENTS Find bold, contemporary theatre at Hull Truck and Beverley’s East Riding Theatre, and in unexpected locations thanks to award-winning smaller theatre companies such as Middle Child and Silent Uproar.
