Kampervan, don't you have a link or something to enlighten us? Maybe this one will suffice. Whatever the case, I have to say that I, a Californian, thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Hull. Les from Hull gave us a wonderful tour along the path marked by brass fish on the sidewalk, and I saw a lightship in the harbor....er, harbour, and the museum was terrific (don't remember which museum it was, but it had a tidal inlet behind it that didn't have any water).

Joe
The announcement had only been made about 3 minutes before I posted
and so I didn't have a link, but yes, yours is a good start. I'm sure
there will lots of other sites soon.

I think that most people didn't think that Hull stood much of a chance
because it gets a lot of criticism (much of it unfounded). One
organisation even said that Hull should be closed! But it's got a
great musical tradition to go with its fishing industry and this
announcement could help it tremendously.

Other than that, having been brought up in Grimsby, traditional rivalries prevent me from saying anything too complimentary, but I did visit Hull quite often and it does have some good things going for it.

Cheers

I spend a lot of time in Hull. I see all sides of the place and reckon it needs a break. Glasgow was a city of culture with its less celebrated areas and so should Hull.

Philip Larkin. William Wilberforce. .... Most days I cross the Humber Bridge and still look forward to the views as you start to cross.

Yeah. Good for them.

Now, did anybody mention the award-winning loo that they had in Hull, or don't they have that loo any more? I Googled for pictures of that picturesque loo with its hanging plants and all, and didn't find it. Could it be that the loo has been removed?

I come from Racine, Wisconsin, another city with a serious inferiority complex, so I immediately took a liking to Hull.

"Hull has its own sudden elegancies. People are slow to leave it, quick to return. And there are others who come, as they think, for a year or two, and stay a lifetime, sensing that they have found a city that is in the world yet sufficiently on the edge of it to have a different resonance."
That quote from Philip Larkin, read by Tom Courtenay in the City of Culture bid video, rings true for Mary and me; we came for three years in 1974 and are still here.And very happy with the city and it's culture. Well done to all involved.

Yes, yes, yes, the full official name is as you say :-)

However the name is good enough for the city council - see Hull C C website, for the University of Hull, for Hull F.C. and for most of the residents.

So it's good enough for me.

Have a great day Hull. It's a good excuse for a drink and a song.

No. Named after the city. The NHS has a habit of agonising over titles, not that you'd notice... Say "Kingston" in Hull and people will say yes, I pay my phone bill to them.

(Interestingly, Hull is the legal name of the former. NHS trusts are (I'm being boring now) in law statutory instruments under The NHS Act 1977. So the official title is "The Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust Act 1998". So the law and indeed Parliament recognise Hull as a geographical entity....)

Now go and find your missing "ert." Missing things in Hull usually end up on The Bransholme estate, so unless you want to bid for it on eBay next week, I suggest you pop over now get looking! ;->

At school in the 50s we Hullensians were always told that Hull was the third largest port in the country after London and Liverpool. Times have changed but any city that can boast both the Watersons and The Housemartins can't be all bad culturally. Not to mention Mick Ronson and most of the Spiders from Mars as well as Tom Courtenay singing the original version of Mrs Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter.

hi

Well done (Kingston-upon)Hull.

Many fond memories spent there in my RAF days. Great place for entertainment of all kinds. And lots of lovely villages close by....at least there were circa 1960 !!!!

The spotlight will be on now and I expect that the City will be "tarted up" ready for the future sightseers.

Didn't do Liverpool any harm.

Pleased would be too inadequate a description of how I feel about the award.

However, I do have reservations and hope that the city makes a better job of running this celebration.

It certainly bombed with its 700th charter anniversary in 1999 when the
person chosen to organise that event left before the event happened under something of a cloud.

In the end very little happened for the relatively large amount of money thrown at it and most people in Hull would have difficulty in even knowing that such an event did occur.

Good question OG! I note several councillors were bleating about Hull's maritime culture on the box. They can speak the speak but......

The short answer is, we haven't given up yet despite Terry bleeding Geraghty and his team.

Of course we deserve it. Some bloody marvellous stuff at some of the Freedom Festivals, The Clipper Race start, The Deep, KC stadium.

And Rob, we haven't been a King's town since we told one of them to piss off during the Civil War. Ull is Ull and ever will be.

Joe, if you ever decide to come back to Ull let us know and we'll have a jar.

Ah, yes, the bombs! Me mam was at the pictures during the Blitz period when she had a funny premonition in the middle of the film. She convinced her mates to leave with her and a few minutes later the whole place was flattened.

A few years later as a toddler I was larkin around on the bombed buildings at the end of our street when somebody threw a half brick and split me head open. Well, that's my excuse!

It's okay to mention the bombs now. In fact there's a marvellous exhibition of the whole show down Whitefriargate.

Loved Hull, lived there for a few years in the sixties when I was working on Humberside on various oil plants. I had a look around the old place a few years back and was very impressed with the changes. The marina area is fantastic, changed a lot since I used to go to work every day on the Wingfield Castle and a few other paddle steamers. Some good old pubs around the docks, marvellous....Good look with the City of Culture venture....
