NOW RESCHEDULED FOR MONDAY AUGUST 10TH
An Aston Martin, an E-Type Jaguar, and a Daimler will be among the spectacular vehicles on show outside Holy Trinity Church for its annual car show.
The eye-catching event in Trinity Square on Monday, August 10th at 7pm, will bring together classic motors and super cars of all types and descriptions.
Organised by the church's men's group, it will also include informative talks from the vehicle owners, opportunities to get behind the wheel for photos and refreshments.
Members of Holy Trinity’s £4.5 development project team will also be on hand to share information and answer questions about the plans to transform this amazing place. There will be an opportunity to sign a Pledge of Support for the changes that will enable Holy Trinity to replace outdated and inadequate facilities; enhance its extraordinary heritage; become much more accessible to the community; and host a huge range of cultural and social events.
Event organiser Revd Matt Woodcock said: “We’d encourage all Hull petrolheads and car enthusiasts to come along as we have some great cars coming. We had loads of good feedback about last year’s event so it’s not to be missed. If our development plans become a reality we’ll be able to do even more things like this.”
At the end of the evening, Vicar of Holy Trinity, Revd Canon Dr Neal Barnes, a former mechanical engineer, will give a talk about the need for people to “check under their bonnet” for a “spiritual MOT”.
He said: “Trinity Square is the ideal location to display these wonderful vehicles. Holy Trinity provides a stunning backdrop and makes for some great pictures. As well as enjoying the cars I hope to give people an insight into what it means to have spiritual fulfilment.”
The planned changes at Holy Trinity include the creation of an open, flexible space within the church for Christian worship, as well as effectively creating an iconic new venue for banquets, concerts and cultural events. The addition of a stylish and high-quality café will help to draw more local people and visitors to Holy Trinity and the Old Town.
The churchyard and Trinity Square will also become a seamless, piazza-style public space as the centrepiece of regeneration of the Old Town in readiness for Hull’s year as UK City of Culture in 2017.
