With lockdown gradually easing up, there will soon be lots more live events happening in and around Hull for you to watch in person! Whilst we wait though and still spending lots of time at home, here are some great online events for you to have a look at this week…

Talking Objects

Tuesday 13 April, 2 PM – 3 PM

If you’ve been missing museums this year, then you will enjoy Sheffield Museum’s Talking Objects. This is an opportunity for the staff to talk about their favourite objects in their collection and sharing their stories. It is all centred around the theme of ‘home’ and you can also have an opportunity to show an object of your own that follows this theme and can have a discussion about it with the group, if you choose to.

Tickets are free and available here.

TOAST: A Guide to Foraging WITH John Wright

Wednesday 14 April, 7 PM – 8 PM

TOAST is a lifestyle brand that creates workshops like this that use traditional practices and craftmanship, such as foraging. If you’re a fan of survival techniques or a history enthusiast, then you will enjoy this unique workshop. With spring amongst us John Wright, author and the nations’ leading expert on foraging, will be using this event to teach you how to identify animals and plants and how to store, use and cook your findings. 20% of the ticket price will go to Crafts Council UK, specifically their Let’s Craft Appeal campaign to help ensure children in need of support get the educating and wellness benefits of creativity.

Tickets cost £10 and are available here.

Titanic- Story of the World’s Most Famous Liner

Thursday 15 April, 5:30 PM – 6:45 PM

April 15 is annual Titanic day, and this year Ed Glinert commemorates this tragic story through this online talk about the creation and demise of the most famous liner in history. He will talk through the creation of the boat and then its ‘unsinkable’ reputation, which we all know to be wrong. As this event is hosted by New Manchester Walks, they will also speak about the many Northern passengers and figures on board, although not the man from Hull that survived- Joseph Boxall, the fourth officer on the Titanic. It’s clear to see that this famous story was a monumental part of local as well as national history.

Tickets cost £8.25 and are available here.

Ted Talks Live …. with Ted & Mala

Thursday 15 April, 7pm

Each week Ted Hanky and his good pal Mala go live on Ted’s Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch pages to talk about local news stories and answer general questions from the online audience.

The Poet’s Tale: Geoffrey Chaucer and The Canterbury Tales

Friday 16 April, 2 PM

The session should be 30-40 minutes with 15 minutes at the end for a Q&A.

Tickets are free and available here.

Abi Jenaé Listening Party

Friday 16 April, 7 PM – 9 PM

In a time that has hugely impacted live events and the livelihoods of musicians, Abi Jenaé has designed this online music concert in order to keep attendees safe and keep the same experience as a live music event. Her Listening Party will be an exclusive opportunity for you to listen to her debut mixtape “Old School Ajay” vol. 1 before its release on 30 April, and will also give you a chance to pre-order or purchase her merchandise. This will be a great chance to experience online concerts before we (hopefully) get to go back to live events.
