Records indicate that Hull City Hall was first in use back in 1909, although it was never “officially” opened. Plans for building the Baroque Style hall began in 1900 as Hull Corporation started the “Junction Street” scheme to form a centrally located square within Hull, known as Queen Victoria Square. In 1903, Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales laid the Foundation stone for a public hall with a front entrance facing the square.
After extensive damage to the City Hall in 1941 from Second World War bombings, it re-opened again in 1950 and in 1951 a new organ was installed.
Hull City Hall is one of the region’s top venues, previously hosting comedy gigs from top UK touring comedians including Jason Manford, Dara O’Briain, Ed Byrne, Bill Bailey and Sarah Millican.
Previous music gigs and concerts hosted at Hull City Hall include original artists of Paul Heaton, Heather Small, Shane Filan, Showaddywaddy and Callum Scott as well as top tributes to Queen, Whitney Houston and more.
