Trip to Hull

Recommended Posts

I've got a gig in Hull in August, which unfortunately means I have to go to Hull.

I don't know anything about Hull except for a vague idea that it might be a bit of a dump.

So how should I play this? Fly in the day of the gig, fly out the day after? Or is Hull worth staying in for a few days, or is there anywhere near Hull that's worth staying in for a few days, with me taking a train/bus into Hull just for the gig?

Its pretty interesting but very weird - very end of the world feel about he place.

Its not violent of dangerous. Just wierd.

 

Yep.

and as far as I know it's the only place that has a monopoly on broadband as there's only one telecomms company (KC) that can dish out the fibre

Actually fuck me it's gonna be one hell of a hassle actually getting to Hull by the looks of things. Looks like Leeds might be the closest.

May have to re-think the trip despite wanting to go to the gig.

And The Housemartins. And Everything But the Girl, famously named after a furniture shop in ("It's never dull in..") Hull.

Meet up with the Yorkshire/Hartlepool lot one evening?

I got sent to Hull for 3 days many years back, I must have upset my boss. Can't remember anything except that it was a shithole and pretty cold as all that East coast is.

Is that the same as being sent to Coventry?  o.O

Hull is in Yorkshire I think, if so, probably best to ask one of our (many) Yorshirian dosbosians to clear your trip with the local tribal leaders, that way you should be able to get in, and out of the place in one piece.
