Hull - More Ways Than One

Hull’s year in the spotlight: art, crowds and a giant turbine blade

As City of Culture, Hull will reflect its fishing port past and its future as a manufacturing hub

Just before the dawn break
Where darkest nights subside
They placed the blade of action
In the city square of pride

Strident triumph overflowing
Up-and-coming on display
A portside place emergent
Soaring heights on Freetown Way

Freedom city breaking chains
Looking forward bold and bright
No longer held by indecision
Swooping culture in full flight
