We hardly ever go out in the evenings here – we’re not far from Bristol, but we hate getting the car out at night, there’s never anywhere to park when we get home, and the bus service is very infrequent.
I note with some amazement that we have four outings booked already in Hull, and we’re not even there yet – the joys of urban living, where we can walk into the city in 20 minutes.
So we have:
- a vampire production of Macbeth at the Hull Truck Theatre on 26 November, just 5 days after we arrive
- Rob Brydon on 5 December. This is actually a bit of a cheat, as he’s on in Scarborough, but still …
- The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain on 10/1/10, again at Hull Truck. I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to this – they are utterly fab
- and just now, from Hull Council’s Twitter feed, I find that Shami Chakrabati is giving the Wilberforce Lecture at the Guildhall in Hull on 14/1/10, and the tickets are free. And I have reserved two. She is followed on stage by our esteemed HomeSec, Alan Johnson, so rotten tomatoes may be in order.
