Hull and the City of Culture 2017

Every four years, a city is chosen to hold a new title: ‘UK City of Culture’. The first winner of this title was Derry/Londonderry in 2013, and the second winner is Hull.

Hull won the competition and will hold the title throughout 2017. This is great news for the people of Hull, as well as all the local companies and organisations that form part of the City. Premier Galvanizing is one such company and we are proud supporters of this great place!

The UK City of Culture award is given to a City that demonstrates “the belief in the transformational power of culture”. To act upon this achievement the people of Hull will spend the next 12 months hosting a variety of events and occasions such as concerts, art exhibitions, plays, dance shows and film screenings. Thousands of people are going to take part, from school children, to volunteers, to local businesses and organisations. (Find out what’s on by visiting the Hull 2017 website.)

Premier Galvanizing Hull has also played a part by becoming a member of the Hull 2017 Business Club, formed in order to help raise the £18million needed for an entire year’s worth of cultural events.

Alex Camp, general manager at Premier Galvanizing Hull, said: “Premier Galvanizing is proud to be located in Hull and has always had a strong commitment to the area, employing local people and using local suppliers.

“The city is changing and we want to be part of its legacy for our employees, their families and the next generation, to feel as proud of Hull as we do.” (Hull Daily Mail)

As the year progresses we’ll report on all the great activities that will happen across this brilliant City, as well as our involvement in it.

Welcome to 2017!  And welcome to Hull!
