We are thrilled with how Place des Anges went and the public response to it. It was a joyous experience, which we hope will live in people’s memories for years to come. It was wonderful to see people of all ages throwing feathery snowballs and even rolling around on the soft white blanket that covered the ground, surrounded by some of Hull’s architectural heritage.
As we look forward to Hull being UK City of Culture in 2017, we shouldn’t forget it’s only one of the many great events taking place this summer that show what a terrific place this is for culture. There is incredible enthusiasm across the city and beyond, amongst our partners and supporters, the cultural organisations, our volunteers and of course the public. It is from this wellspring energy, ideas and creativity that Hull will produce an extraordinary 365 days of great cultural activity next year.
