Domino tiles will be scattered through streets, public squares, a shopping centre and a council estate as part of the spectacle.

They will create a chain reaction of just over two miles long, lasting around 60 minutes.

During its course the tiles will go into Guildhall’s council chamber, before escaping through a window, falling from the balcony at City Hall and stopping traffic on Ferensway.

From 12pm - spectators will be able to watch the blocks being assembled by 450 City of Culture Volunteers working alongside Station House Opera’s Artistic Director, Julian Maynard Smith.

The first block will be knocked over at 4.30pm on Saturday, at the Boat Yard at Hull Marina and end in Queens Gardens.
