Why Hull Venue needs you to flush it’s toilets!

It might sound crazy, but Hull Venue is hoping to be ‘flushed’ with success as it seeks volunteers to help at a very special test event next month.

The Myton Street arena, which opens this summer, is hosting The Grand Flush and is looking for people to come and test the facility’s toilets.

The event will take place at 3pm on Wednesday, 13 June and 140 volunteers are required.

Those in attendance will be rewarded for their flushing with a full guided tour afterwards – becoming some of the first members of the public to see the new arena.

Dan Harris, General Manager at Hull Venue, said: “The Grand Flush may sound trivial, but it goes to show the level of detail we have to go through to ensure the Venue is ready for action later this summer. We’re testing lots of different bits to ensure they can withstand 3,500 visiting and one of the ways to do that is to flush the toilets at the same time!

“As a thank you, those volunteers who attend will be given a special guided tour of the arena, becoming some of the first people to see the arena in its fully finished form.”
