Lord Mayor's Parade and Hanse Day

  • Hull Minster South Church Side Hull United Kingdom (map)

After 3 successful years, Hull’s annual Hanseatic day of celebration is back!

This year, we’re bigger and better than ever, as we’re also celebrating the newly-appointed Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull

Join us in various locations across Hull city centre on Saturday 8th June for the first ever Lord Mayor’s Hanse Day!

A family day of fun, we'll travel back in time to the 13th Century, when Kingston upon Hull was one of three UK cities operating in The Hanseatic League across Northern Europe.

Immerse yourself in medieval Hull and learn about crafts and trade in Trinity Square. Try your hand at wattle and daub, gaze in wonder at our fire breathing jester or sit and enjoy a tale of old.

Wander Whitefriargate and experience pop up performances and children's craft activities.

Spend time in Queen Victoria Square where you'll find our stage filled with performances of song, dance, and spoken word

There will also be craft activities so you can make something to wear as part of our parade

That's right! We will be celebrating our newly appointed Lord Mayor and our city's trading history with a colourful parade through the city centre.

Join in or line the streets and watch the parade on Lord Mayor's Hanse Day!
