2 amazing handling collections
2,000 people and one incredible story
This summer the Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City team have attended some of the city’s most popular summer events in order to spread the word about the ongoing maritime project.
Supported by Mrs Pickwick, the Victorian Whaler’s Wife, and George, the Tudor Pilot, we have been making compasses, building boats and giving people the chance to handle some amazing objects from our whaling and navigation handling collections.
We have had a blast speaking to over 2,000 people about some of the amazing changes that will be taking place in Hull over the next four years.
