Graffiti Hunt – Hull Urban Street Art Photowalk – Sat 15 Sept 2018

We are meeting on Humber Dock Marina at Humber Street at 11.00am and we’ll be taking part in a walk that takes us across Hull’s Old Town and eventually leading up to Bankside/Wincolmlee. And aim to end the walk with refreshments at the Whalebone pub.

WHETHER you call it street art, urban art, guerrilla art or graffiti art, there is no denying that such art forms have become acceptable with permission being granted in some places in Hull to create it. On Saturday 15 September 2018 Hedon Viewfinders is going to go on a Graffiti Hunt to see what all the fuss is about!

With the ever-changing nature of this art form we can almost guarantee that there will be something different to see this week than last week.

ALL WELCOME – you don’t have to be a ‘member’. It’s a free, fun and friendly walk with enthusiastic photographers.

We’ll aim to go ahead in all but the worst weather.

“Blue Thursday” TONIGHT to celebrate 70 years of the NHS

To mark the NHS’s 70th birthday, historic buildings and other high profile sites across Hull City Centre will be ‘lighting up’ blue on the evening of Thursday, 5 July. #NHS70 #LightUpBlue

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.
