A music event which has become a big favourite in Hull’s live entertainment scene launches another series this week with the first of seven sessions presenting top local talent in a party atmosphere.
Trinity Live will resume on Thursday 13 April and will feature Sandra’s Wedding, All Gone South and Alice Clayton on stage in Hull’s Trinity Market. Admission is free and music lovers can also explore the array of fantastic food and drink with traders staying open for the show.
Trinity Live made its debut in 2019 in the run-up to the annual, and enormously popular, Humber Street Sesh festival. It has become established as one of the city’s most successful live music events and is expected to be even more popular this year with HullBID stepping up to help spread the word.
Mark Page of Sesh Events said: “We’re delighted to have been asked back by Hull City Council and HullBID to host and curate the return of Trinity Live – a warm, community night of live entertainment which will take place every Thursday within Trinity Market.
“It’s an event for all ages, with families encouraged to attend, and it will feature some of the region’s finest original bands and acts from the area’s flourishing music scene. The market itself comes alive during the evening too, with many of the stalls opening up providing a wide range of food and drinks.”
Mark, who will again bring in Hull-based sound and light experts at HPSS for the events, added that Trinity Live attracted weekly audiences of more than 300 during 2021 and 2022.
Kathryn Shillito, HullBID Executive Director, said Trinity Live will kickstart a summer of live shows which will boost businesses by attracting more people into the city centre and provide after work entertainment for people employed in the city centre.
Kathryn said: “Trinity Live has become an iconic event over the years and we’ll be working more closely with Hull City Council and the organisers of Trinity Live to help the event reach a wider audience.
“It’s a great opportunity for city centre business owners and their staff to enjoy great food and superb entertainment after work so we’ll be raising awareness and urging people to tell their colleagues.
“HullBID’s own events programme continues to evolve – years ago we pioneered midweek live music in the city centre during the week, and we followed that with Trinity Festival in Zebedee’s Yard and Trinity Square.
“Soon we’ll be announcing details of our Trinity Reboot live music programme which will add to the vibrancy of Trinity Live by taking even more live music into some of the city centre pubs and bars. But it starts right now, with another seven rounds of Trinity Live which will pull in the crowds and support our city centre evening economy.”
Trinity Live will start on Thursday 13 April and take place from 6.30pm until 9pm every Thursday until 25 May.
