Hull is set to take on an early 20th century feel later this month when the city centre hosts its annual Edwardian Easter Fete and Market.

Visitors are being invited to dress up in traditional Edwardian costumes for the free event. It is hoped the celebration will attract more than 10,000 people to the Museums Quarter on High Street in Hull’s old town.

With the event running between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, March 26, attractions are set to include Edwardian-style market stalls and performers as well as music, a helter skelter and horse and carriage rides.

There will also be an Easter bonnet contest, Punch and Judy shows, face painting and craft activities for younger visitors.

A vintage bus, meanwhile, is to be laid on to help get visitors across the city. The event – now in its third year – is being organised by Hull Culture and Leisure in partnership with HullBID and local businesses.

Kathryn Shillito, City Centre Manager for HullBID, said: “HullBID provides funding to ensure there is a wide-range of activities for all the family and this, paired with the excellent educational provision, makes it such a success.

“Our member businesses in the old town look forward to increased footfall and the benefits this brings.”
