The arts and cultural programme for the year celebrates the unique character of Hull, its people, history and geography. The 2017 programme is split into four seasons, each with something distinctive and intriguing to say, and each created to challenge and thrill. Young people are at the heart of the programme - it’s this group who will inherit the longer-term benefits as a result of the focus around learning and participation.
