Lord Mayor's Hanse Day coming to Hull city centre in June

Two of Hull’s best-loved summer events are joining forces this year.

The annual International Hanse Day and Lord Mayor’s Gala are coming together to create Lord Mayor’s Hanse Day 2019.

On Saturday 8 June, the Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull will officially open the day in Queen Victoria Square, accompanied by staged performances including singing, dance and spoken word, as well as free face painting and children’s craft activities.

In Trinity Square, there will be a medieval market with medieval crafts, confectionery, pottery, jousting, medieval musical workshops for children, as well as a fire-breathing jester.

There will also be pop up performances on Whitefriargate plus a craft market on Trinity House Lane.

Councillor Dave Craker, portfolio holder for leisure and tourism, said: “We’re really excited about merging these two great events together this year into something much bigger and much more diverse.

“We’re also thrilled that once again we will be celebrating our historical Hanse links and giving people the opportunity to find out more about our association with the league.”

The Lord Mayor’s parade will take place in the Old Town and there will also be the opportunity to meet the Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull at the Guildhall. From 10.30am until 12pm the Lord Mayor will be inviting people to join him for a cup of tea and a bun.

Lord Mayor’s Hanse Day 2019 takes place from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 8 June.
