Hull Minster is an amazing place to be enjoyed by the whole community. For over 700 years we have stood in the heart of Hull’s Old Town as its civic church which welcomes all through our doors.
Our magnificent medieval building has many interesting spaces which are used for a wide variety of activities and events from artistic and cultural performances, recitals and exhibitions, receptions and celebrations, banquets and festivals. We have hosted a wide range of events such as fashion shows, rock and pop concerts, classical and choral recitals and concerts, networking events and training courses, history talks, graduation ceremonies and youth parties.
We have completed phase 1 and 2 of our £4.5m development project to improve our facilities and create a large, open space in the nave. The Nave has underfloor heating, Cat5e and 6 data points and 2 x 13a amp sockets at each pillar. A new audio and video system, including a 4m side projection screen in the main east/west arch for use in the Nave. The AV is now capable of supporting a wide number of uses and configurations. The new lighting system allows for a theatrical element to be incorporated in to your event, or to support a wider, temporary lighting installation. We now have a fit for purpose building of historical and medieval importance combined with modern infrastructure for the next generation.
