It’s a bumper bundle at Hull City Hall

Just in time for Christmas, Hull City Hall announces a ‘magnificent seven’ with everything from comedy and music to West End favourites and a ghost or two.

Comic genius Ed Byrne has borrowed a quote from Mark Twain for the name of his new show. The famous author said: “humour is defined as tragedy plus time” and Ed tests that formula by delving  into the most tragic event in his life for laughs on 27 September 2024.

From stand-up to spooks as Most Haunted Live premieres its spine-chilling theatre show on 3 October 2024. Presented by Yvette Fielding, together with Karl Beattie and the Most Haunted team, audiences embark on a dark and terrifying journey featuring the show’s top 10 scares, complete with unseen video footage from haunted castles, manor houses, hospitals and prisons.

A trip of a very different kind is taken with international soprano Rebecca Caine in the Mortimer Suite on 12 March 2024. The operatic and West End star’s Dividing Day journeys through classics from writers such as Bernstein, Bucchino, Guettel, LaChiusa, Sondheim, Weill and Yeston.

More anthems are on the way on 6 September 2024 with The Ultimate Classic Rockshow rocking tracks from Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Free, The Eagles and Jimi Hendrix.

And the nostalgia keeps coming with Barry Steele’s Roy Orbison Story paying homage to the ‘Big O’ on 5 October 2024 with a show full of hits, including Pretty Woman, Crying, I Drove All Night, You Got It, Only The Lonely, In Dreams, California Blue, and Handle with Care. 

Classics from a different era are celebrated with Too Much Too Young – The Story Of 2Tone & Beyond on 31 October 2024. This amazing show goes One Step Beyond with a feast of hits from Madness, Bad Manners, The Specials, The Selecter, and The Bodysnatchers.

From ska to stand-up Simon Brodkin, the world-famous prankster and Lee Nelson creator brings his outrageous stand-up show to Hull on 17 October 2024. Nothing is off-limits as Simon rips into celebrity culture, social media, the police, Putin, Prince Andrew, and God.
