Hull Culture and Leisure
From 1 April 2015 Hull History Centre has been run on behalf of
Hull City Council by Hull Culture and Leisure Ltd.
Hull Culture and Leisure Ltd is wholly owned by the City Council.
It has been set up to run:
- Tourist Information Centre and Box Office
- Hull Arena
- Hull City Hall
- Hull New Theatre
- Hull Libraries
- Hull History Centre (in partnership with the University of
- Museums and Galleries
- Sports and Leisure Facilities
- Sports Development
- Civic Catering Services
Visitors to these venues and service users
will not be affected by these changes. The City Council continues
to be in partnership with the University of Hull to deliver the
History Centre service.
Cllr Terry Geraghty, Chair of Hull Culture and
Leisure Ltd said:
"This is an exciting time for us. Creating
this company opens up a whole host of new opportunities, not least
in terms of gaining funding from sources previously not available
to us as a Local Authority.
The transition to the new company will be seamless and residents
should not see any difference in the service we provide.
I look forward to seeing how the company will progress and the
benefits it will bring to the city".
