Hull Heritage Days 2017

Home / Event / Hull Heritage Days 2017

Heritage Open Days begin this week across the country and as befits its first year as UK City of Culture, Hull’s contribution is bigger and better than ever.

This event, run nationally by English Heritage and coordinated locally by Hull Civic Society, runs between Tuesday 5th – Sunday 12th September.

The granting of grade II listed status to Philip Larkin’s flat at 32 Pearson earlier this year was further recognition of the important part he plays in the City’s literary heritage and over the next nine days there will be several opportunities to explore his legacy.
