The Best Events Around Hull & East Yorkshire This Week | 22 – 28 June 2022

As things begin to cool down, the next few days are the perfect conditions to get out and make the most of Hull. With Yellow Day coming up and The Big Malarkey Festival at the weekend, make sure to mark your calendars. So here are some Top Events in Hull you might want to look out for!

The incredibly interesting Hands-On History Museum opens on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, so consider paying a visit this Saturday. Theatre performances such as Zog And The Flying Doctors and A Tale of Orpheus & Eurydice are great starters for days out with the family, and with a mix of other events such as the Brick by Brick exhibition and Rag’n’Bone Man gig, it’s a good week to be out and about in Hull & East Yorkshire.

Hands-On History Museum (Free Entry)

Saturday 25 June @ The Hands-On History Museum

The Hands-on History Museum, in the old Grammar School where William Wilberforce studied, houses the story of Hull and its people. Hands-on History includes a fascinating glimpse into Victorian times, the Story of Hull and also features the Egyptian Gallery. This gallery is home to a genuine 2,600-year-old mummy and unique replicas of King Tutankhamen’s treasures.

Entry to the museum is free, & it is open from 12-noon to 4 pm on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. For all the info, and ticket bookings, visit here.

Zog And The Flying Doctors

Wednesday 22 June & Thursday 23 June 2022 @ Hull City Hall

Zog, super keen student turned air-ambulance, still lands with a crash-bang-thump. Together with his Flying Doctor crew, Princess Pearl and Sir Gadabout, they tend to a sunburnt mermaid, a unicorn with one too many horns and a lion with the flu. However, Pearl’s uncle, the King, has other ideas about whether princesses should be doctors, and she’s soon locked up in the castle back in a crown and a silly frilly dress!

With a bit of help from some friends and half a pound of cheese, can Pearl make her uncle better and prove princesses can be doctors too?
