  • Tourist Information Centre and Box Office 
  • Hull Arena

  • Hull Libraries 
  • Hull History Centre (in partnership with the University of Hull)
  • Museums and Galleries

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".
