SHORT NOTICE… but still worth a visit to Hull City Centre TONIGHT (Thursday 5 July) with our cameras.

Fancy a trip into Hull tonight for “BLUE THURSDAY”?

Whilst some might politically challenge the colour chosen to mark the NHS’s 70th birthday, buildings, historic monuments and other high profile sites across the country will be ‘lighting up’ blue on the evening of Thursday, 5 July.

NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group has joined forces with Hull City Council to bathe several of Hull’s recognisable monuments in blue light.

Includes:

  • Fountains in Queen Victoria Square
  • Maritime Museum
  • City Hall
  • Hull Minster
  • Solar Gate
  • Queen Victoria statue in Queen Victoria Square
  • Andrew Marvell statue
  • Ferens Art Gallery

This is a great opportunity for photography. People can join up with Hedon Viewfinders; meeting at Hull Pier (outside the Minerva pub) at 9:15pm to capture the sunset, and then have the stroll alongside the Marina to Queen Victoria Square for 9:45pm’ish.

People are encouraged to share their photos via social media using the hashtags: #NHS70 and #LightUpBlue.

Photos taken on Hedon Viewfinders visit to town in April.
