to Aug 31

Cross Art

The cross is a world renowned iconic symbol. This project aims to include those of all faiths and diverse backgrounds who are looking to express their artistic feelings. 
The cross above all is recognised as a Christian symbol.  This project however aims to include not only Christians but also those of other faiths and diverse walks of life, who are looking to express their artistic feelings through this iconic symbol.
Cross Art will be created by nine different artists and three groups and will consist of fourteen crosses
They will be displayed at various locations across the City of Hull and into the East Riding.
The exhibitions will start at Hull Minster on Monday 13th August 2018
The aim of the Cross Art project is to use the symbol of the cross to enable a diverse group of individual artists and group’s to illustrate and demonstrate their individual beliefs, culture, feelings and emotions through this iconic medium. 
It will hopefully attract a new audience of people into the exhibitions, to view a different aspect of art and culture, and enable marginalised people to have an outlet for their views.

Freedom Festival - Museum of the Moon

Marvel at the moon, in this new touring artwork

A fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound, come marvel at the Museum of the Moon, a new touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.

Measuring seven metres in diameter and featuring detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.

Created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones, The Museum of the Moon will collect new musical compositions and a collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies.

To celebrate the installation, Freedom Festival will present an accompanying programme of lunar inspired events, talks and happenings beneath the moon.

Museum of the Moon by artist Luke Jerram, co-commissioned by a number of creative organisations brought together by Luke Jerram and Norfolk & Norwich Festival. These include: At-Bristol, Kimmel Center, Lakes Alive, Provincial Domain Dommelhof, Brighton Festival, Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Without Walls, Les Tombées de la Nuit, Rennes and Cork Midsummer Festival. The artwork has also been created in partnership with the UK Space Agency, University of Bristol and The Association for Science and Discovery Centres.

Supported by the Without Walls Associate Touring Network, British Science Association and the InSitu network.

Open Daily as follows;

Thursday 30th August 17:00 - 22:00

Friday 31st August - Saturday 14th September 10:00 - 22:00

Freedom Festival - Is there someone out there?

Is there someone out there? The search for life elsewhere poses many scientific questions. Join in the debate.

Freedom Talks #2 With the British Science Festival

The search for life elsewhere poses many scientific questions, but also deeper questions about our existence on Earth.  What is more challenging – the thought of being alone in the Universe or the idea that we may have company? Join Brad Gibson, Head of Physics at the University of Hull as he talks about the places in the galaxy life is most likely to develop. He will be joined by Stephen Burwood, the Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Hull who will reflect on the societal implications of this research.

British Sign Language interpreters will be on site for this talk.

Modern Ritual

Modern Ritual

Performance events exploring ideas of ritual through music and words

Laura Cannell’s Modern Ritual is a new series of performance events which explore ideas of ritual through music and words and evokes real and fictional landscapes.

Ancient, modern, experimental, real, fictional, personal, folkloric. It explores human and mechanical rituals, failure of ritual, through live improvisation and provides a platform to premier new works.

Tonight’s Modern Ritual features 3 musical performances from The Liverpool based ensemble Ex-Easter Island Head who compose and perform music for solid-body electric guitar, percussion and other instruments.

Laura Cannell who subverts our preconceptions of familiar instruments by playing two recorders simultaneously and deconstructing her violin to create otherworldly soundscapes, and Hoofus (aka André Bosman) – a musician who produces electronic music of eerie wonder and feral yearnings, where oscillating melodic loops meld with distorted rhythms.

Heritage Open Days
Sep

to Sep 9

Heritage Open Days

Heritage Market and Tours

Once again we are excited to open up the Minster and the Tower to visitors with our tour guides and experts on hand throughout the 8th Spetember. (£5 donation to access the tower).

The Minster, as always, will be open 10am until 5pm Tuesday to Saturday.

Following five years of church growth and two years of internal and external refurbishment, this honour marks the transformation of the church into an urban minster in acknowledgment of our growth and ministry and in anticipation of what is to come. Becoming a Minster is both about recognising what we already do in serving our city and the wider church and looking to expand this work in the future. The church is therefore as old as the city itself. There are many signs to its medieval roots so come in and explore.Remarkable history is everywhere here. You can see the font where William Wilberforce was baptised, stunning stained glass by Walter Crane, memorials to Hull's fallen in two World Wars and other conflicts, including a book recording a number of local soldiers lost in the Great War. 

This year Hull minster will use two WW1 memorials as a focus for discussion on Heritage Open Days. The first, is a simple battlefield cross, inscribed to an ‘Unknown British Soldier’, originally on a battlefield on the western front. We know it was brought back to Hull, by the local British Legion. The second is the Golden Book memorial inside a glass case with surrounding wooden panels showing badges from local regiments. Names were entered into the book at a cost of a guinea. 
During Heritage Open Days, using the two memorials as focus points, we ask people to bring in photos, items such as letters, to create ‘a wall of memory’ for those who were killed in World War One.

Opera17

Opera17

Opera17 was founded by Sharon Nicholson-Skeggs in 2017 as part of the City of Culture celebrations ( although a semi-staged performance of Tosca was per-formed in 2016). Sharon felt that for many years there has not been a platform for local singers to sing Grand Opera and Musicals as she has herself had to travel outside of the city to perform this repetoire.

The aim of the group is therfore to bring this type of music to the people of Hull with quality singers and also to help raise funds for good causes. 2017 was the first year for the Company with performances at Hull Minster, Sewerby Hall and the Guildhall as well as other venues in the city.
