Find out who we are working with to deliver Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City.


We aim to deliver lasting and relevant outcomes for the arts and cultural industry, residents and visitors alike by working with partners at a local, regional, national and international level. The work we carry out as one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations (NPO) is aimed at driving and delivering excellence in museums.

We will continue to tell Hull’s stories through a variety of ways – such as exhibitions, tours and displays, public and community engagement to name but a few. This is often achieved through partnerships with regional and national museums and organisations and supported through strong connections with researchers, artists, volunteers, communities and colleagues in Hull City Council and Hull Culture and Leisure to deliver the best possible.

Hull City Council

As guardian of the internationally significant collections at Hull Maritime Museum, the Arctic Corsair and Spurn Lightship, the council is leading on the Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City project.

It recognises the need to protect, preserve and promote our rich maritime history, global links and how we became the city we are today.

From the priceless artefacts, to the pictures, the moving footage and the written word, Hull has more heritage than it is currently possible to display.

The council would like to make these collections more accessible to the people of Hull and visitors, and this project will double the number of objects on display at Hull Maritime Museum, offering longer opening hours and improved interpretation to create an outstanding tourist attraction in the north of England.

National Lottery Heritage Fund

Thanks to National Lottery players, the National Lottery Heritage Fund invests money to help people across the UK explore, enjoy and protect the heritage they care about - from the archaeology under our feet to the historic parks and buildings we love, from precious memories and collections to rare wildlife.

Hull Culture and Leisure

Hull Culture and Leisure operate the city’s parks, Hull New Theatre, Hull City Hall, libraries, museums and the Ferens Art Gallery on behalf of Hull City Council, playing a major role in the delivery of the cultural and leisure sector in Hull. They deliver world-class exhibitions, shows and events to continue to attract increased visitor numbers year on year.
