Hull Trains supporting local summer events

Crowds from across Yorkshire will flock to the city when two summertime events return with the backing of Hull Trains.

Hull Trains is an official partner of Pride in Hull, which takes place on Saturday 30 July in Queen’s Gardens.

Over 50,000 attendees were present at the day-long LGBTQ+ celebration in 2019, plus thousands more lined the streets to enjoy the parade, and similar crowds are expected this year as the event prepares to make a comeback following the pandemic.

Hull Trains is a proud sponsor of the event and revellers will catch glimpses of the company logo around the festival site. You can find more information at

Hull Trains are also delighted to be involved with this year’s Humber Street Sesh, sponsoring the Dead Bod Stage – the stage symbolising Hull’s fishing heritage. The event will return to its birthplace on Hull Marina, Saturday 13 August, with tickets on sale now at

Mark Page, Founder and Artistic Director of Humber Street Sesh, said: “We are thankful and proud to be supported by Hull Trains since 2019 with their continued sponsorship of our iconic, solar-powered Dead Bod stage, which hosts an eclectic mix of Hull’s favourite bands. Their support has been invaluable to Humber Street Sesh and our mission to give a platform to the brilliant artists in the city and beyond.” 

David Gibson, Managing Director at Hull Trains, added: “Both events deserve our support, as they aim to bring local communities together whilst attracting people from far and wide to come and see everything the city of Hull has to offer. I am sure everyone attending both events will have a fantastic time and we wish them and the organisers all the very best.”

Humber Street Sesh is taking place on the east side of the Marina, with a free fringe area encompassing Humber Street and Stage@TheDock that will host some of the day’s events. The fringe area will allow Marina businesses to operate as normal and lessen the impact of the event on residential areas and locals.
