Trinity Square to host farmer’s market, tours and more this weekend

This weekend, Hull is hosting an event celebrating Yorkshire’s heritage with a farmer’s market, exhibition, tours and more.

Now in its 3rd year, the Yorkshire Heritage Summit will be held in Hull over the weekend of the 11th & 12th May 2024. This year will be the biggest Summit yet with volunteers from Yorkshire’s many heritage organisations and people with an interest in Yorkshire heritage descending on Hull for a range of events.

The main events on Saturday will be held at Hull Minster and have been planned to showcase the importance of Yorkshire’s unique culture, history and landscape.

There will be a free-to-attend public Heritage Exhibition in Hull Minster’s nave, where as well as many local heritage organisations exhibiting, there will also be national and regional organisations such as English Heritage, Heritage Lottery Fund and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.

There is also a full-day Yorkshire Heritage Symposium with keynote speakers and the presentation of the Harry Gration History Prize. There are still a few tickets left for the Symposium (£10) and attendees will get to hear presentations about The “Chalkshire” Project, the vision for a proposed UNESCO Geopark in The Yorkshire Wolds and the Distinctive Culture & Heritage of the East Riding.

Hull Minster will be hosting an outside Farmers Market on the Saturday and Hull White Badge Tourist Guides will be running free Maritime heritage walks throughout the day

Yorkshire has a wonderful food and drink heritage and so, to make the most of the Heritage Summit’s Saturday timing, and to attract more of the general public into the event, a Farmer’s Market on Trinity Square, right outside the Minster where the Exhibition, Conference and Workshops will take place, will complement the event and boost visitors.
