Hull University Founder's Day

It is with tremendous pride that we warmly invite you to join alumni, staff, students, civic dignitaries and friends of the University for the 2015 Founder’s Day Celebration, returning to Holy Trinity Church for the first time in a generation on 23rd April.

The Founder’s Day Celebration is a central part of the University calendar. It is the occasion when we recall and celebrate Thomas Ferens and his act of philanthropy which led to the founding of the University of Hull.
