'Formed in the 1930's. A group of ladies decided to start their own entertainment programme in Hornsea, because it was difficult to travel to concerts in Hull. Like many social organisations, activities were suspended during World War II, but they were restarted in 1948 ... The society continues to thrive after more than 70 years ... The society are very grateful to the United Reformed Church for storing its Grand Piano.'

‘Started in 1906 and, apart from the years between 1940 and 1943, has been held annually ever since. It has always been a competitive Festival and became hugely successful, especially during the 1950's & The Festival of Britain, the 1960's, 70's and 80's. It grew in entry numbers to become one of the largest in the country. Each of the Sections - Piano, Vocal and Choral, Instrumental, Verse and Drama, Schools' Dance needed a whole week of performance and adjudication sessions, each, using every morning, afternoon and evening. In 2007, entry numbers dropped considerably in the Piano, Instrumental & Vocal section, for a variety of reasons,but we managed to keep going, and now, with the input of a group of young, enthusiastic instrumental teachers, it is gradually returning to its former self.’

Performing a regular season of three concerts in Hull's magnificent City Hall, we boast a history of renowned conductors, including national figures such as Sir Henry Wood, founder of the Proms ... The story started in June 1881 when a small group of dedicated music lovers gathered at the George Hotel in Hull and proposed the formation of an orchestral music society. With just 27 players, a devoted committee and loyal patrons, the Hull Philharmonic Society was born.

In 1911, the organ, built by Forster and Andrews of Hull, was installed in the main hall. This was controversial as some considered it too big for the space and it was only allowed to go ahead after a Government inquiry. Today it remains one of the largest working organs in use in the country.’

‘At Holy Trinity, we have strong artistic roots with 700 years of cultural and artistic tradition. We encourage artists and performers as well as cultivating participation in the arts for city centre communities ... In establishing an arts programme we have met with artists and enabled innovative use of the church building. We have made an open call for artists to come forward so we can think about how we can accommodate their projects. Whilst we strive for excellence, we also endeavour to nurture new talent by giving artists the ability to experiment and practice their arts in a well set up environment which is free to use at certain times. Our point of difference will be that our daytime provision of art will be free to audiences and free to performers.‘
