Summer is looking tasty, with colour, flavour and community spirit popping up outside Holy Trinity Church.

HullBID has already introduced some fantastic events to the city centre, including Yum! Food Festival, HullBID Fashion Week and Hull Trinity Festival. This year, Hull Street Food Nights will be the go-to event for foodies.

“Hull Street Food Nights brings fantastic, locally sourced food to a wonderful area of our city centre,” Kathryn Shillito, City Centre Manager for HullBID, tells us.

“We have lots of really good food and beverage providers in Hull. We wanted to bring them together for those in town in the early evening.”

Hull Street Food Nights takes place on Thursday evenings from 4pm to 9pm once a month. The exciting festival will be the perfect excuse to catch up with workmates or spend time with your family.

“It will be really vibrant,” enthuses Kathryn. “You can come along with colleagues, friends and the kids. It’s a place where to enjoy really good quality street food and entertainment.”

Each event will involve around 15 stalls, located in the newly polished Trinity Square.


“We’ve got a whole range of exciting flavours to tickle every palate. There will be Indian-inspired cuisine, gourmet burgers, pancakes, and even bubble and squeak.”

Vendors confirmed for the first event on Thursday 20 April include Shoot The Bull, Tapasya, KerbEdge, Hull Pie, Go Dutch Pancake House, Yorkshire Brewing Company, Roots Rum Shack and Kitchen, Herby’s, and Sugar ‘n’ Spice Cakes.

Meanwhile, food lovers can enjoy a broad variety of entertainment:

“We’ve got fire eaters, jugglers and circus acts. Plus Mak Page, who organises Humber Street Sesh, is going to be our resident DJ.”

The square will come alive thanks to this creative collective, accompanied by picnic chairs and relaxation areas.

“The emphasis is on unwinding and having fun,” Kathryn adds with a smile.


Hull Street Food Nights has already received a lot of attention on social media, with over 4,000 people liking, sharing and saying that they will attend some of the six events already confirmed.

The dates are 20 April, 25 May, 22 June, 27 July, 17 August and 21 September.

“If Hull Street Food Nights proves popular, we’ll be looking into putting them on more regularly.”

“The events are sure to benefit both the vendors involved and those restaurants and bars in the HullBID district,” explains Kathryn.

“Our event finishes at 9pm and plenty of people will head to the local pubs for more drinks and food.”

She also tells us that HullBID wanted to support Hull UK City of Culture 2017 in any way it could:

“We had a conversation with Martin Green and he said ‘food, food, food’. It was then that we began discussing the street food concept.”

“Trinity Square was an obvious choice for us. It’s a beautiful space overlooked by the stunning church, and we’re really delighted to be there.”

Hull Street Food Nights is free to attend, family friendly and will be a really fantastic event. To find out more, visit the event’s Facebook page.
