The best events around Hull & East Yorkshire this week | 18 Jan – 24 Jan 2023

As we push through January and the trials & tribulations of our city’s icy weather, it’s the perfect time to head to a venue and warm up with a drink and some entertainment.

We’ve put together another collection of events and shows, from comedy and theatre to music and exhibitions, and even some outdoor adventures and more, so have a look!

Varna International Ballet & Orchestra Giselle

Wednesday 18 Jan @ Hull New Theatre

The most poignant of all classical ballets is filled with dramatic passion in a chilling and heart-rending tale of love, treachery, and forgiveness from beyond the grave. The moving story of delicate Giselle and her aristocratic but duplicitous lover Albrecht is set to a glorious score.

From the visual splendour of the rustic villagers happily gathering the harvest at the story’s start to the eerie moonlit forest haunted by beautifully drifting spirits, this production is unforgettable.

Susan Santos @ Wrecking Ball

Thursday 19 Jan @ Wrecking Ball Arts Centre

This event may have been cancelled, contact Wrecking Ball at sales@wreckingabllstore.co.uk or 01482 214941 for more information.

Susan Santos’s distinctive voice and appealing guitar style, along with her strong stage presence, are very refreshing in the contemporary blues scene of the 21st Century! Susan won The Best Musician Performance 2018 in the European Blues Awards, and was nominated for Texas Sounds Music Awards in 2019.

A great passion for music led Susan Santos to learn how to play the guitar and sing. Step by step, the lefty guitarist and singer was creating her own songs and her particular style of understanding music.

The Scenario:
Style TV is new to the UK. Owned by Australian media magnate Greg Copeland, the TV company is set to go head to head in an all-out war with BBC’s ‘Strictly’ this year. Their new dance show, ‘Step Up & Dance’  promises to be big & brash.

The night will be an opportunity for one lucky person to join the show. So if you feel lucky, put on your dancing shoes and practice that hip sway – but be careful with all those egos, fake tan and sequins…

Peter Huby: Hull and Back

Friday 20 Jan – Sunday 12 Mar @ University of Hull

Peter Huby’s career as an artist, writer, filmmaker and house builder spans 60 years and several countries. After growing up in Hull, and working across the east and north of England, Peter settled in Greece in 2004 where his creative output expanded to include a hand-built and mosaiced house of exceptional originality.

This exhibition is a retrospective covering his work from 1968 to the present day. It includes his latest series of paintings inspired by the Spurn peninsula, a recurring theme in his work, alongside ceramic sculptures, prints, drawings and large-scale photographs of the mosaiced house that he and his partner, Linda Cox, have been building since 2006.
