Hull’s Holy Trinity Church and Trinity Square are both set to be given a new lease of life thanks to a £4.5 million makeover.

Holy Trinity’s vicar, Reverend Canon Dr Neal Barnes, hopes that the project will breathe new life into the ancient 13th-century building, which is England’s biggest parish church, as well as advancing the worship of God.

The changes, planned by Hull City Council to start early next year, will create a more flexible space where concerts and cultural events can be held.

Meanwhile, Trinity Square will be reinvented as an attractive public space reminiscent of a Mediterranean piazza.

Money for the work will be raised through donations and pledges and £1.5 million has already been received from individual benefactors.

The remainder of the cost is expected to be met by further donations as well as money from trust funds and foundations.

Subject to planning permission, the major project is set to be finished by late 2016 in time for City of Culture celebrations.
