The next two months are the highlight of the summer events calendar in Hull.

Humber Street Sesh


Humber Street Sesh is now bigger and better than ever before. There are more bands, bigger stages, exciting food and drink stalls, plus plenty more. This is all happening across the two-day event on Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th August 2018.

Hideout Hotel is getting in on the action by offering our guests a "Sesh" deal they couldn’t refuse. We are welcoming our special Humber Street Sesh guests with wristbands for both days, a fridge full of local Atom beers, and the odd bottle of gin thrown in.

The Hull Marina and Humber Street area is the central point for this amazing festival. If you haven’t booked for this year, make sure you plan your Hideout Hotel stay next year. We can make sure you don’t miss out on the best parts of all the Hull city centre fun.

Our hotel is a stone’s throw away from all the action, so there’s no need for you to miss a music beat or have to queue for those dreaded portaloo toilets. You’ll have everything at hand in your contemporary serviced city centre apartment. If you have any spare time you can always visit the newly built Bonus Arena or take a look around one of Hull’s most spectacular aquariums, known as The Deep.

Dominoes Art Installation


If Sesh has come and gone by the time you read this then don't worry - there's more to be had in Hull this Summer. 

You can come to Hull the following weekend for "Dominoes" by Station House Opera, taking place on Saturday 11 August 2018. An internationally acclaimed, site-specific celebratory event, it will take over Hull playing with the architecture of the city on a 3.5km domino run for all to enjoy – a moving sculpture, both playful and epic.

Dominoes will weave its way through streets, public squares, civic buildings and private homes, climbing stairs, falling from windows and occasionally conquering a structure built from yet more blocks. Visit Absolutely Cultured website for more info: www.absolutelycultured.co.uk

VIEWING TIP: The Dominoes route falls outside Hideout in Trinity Square...so you won't need to venture very far to see it. If you fancy mooching elsewhere to see the installation...we recommend watching it in the historic shopping arcade - Paragon Arcade, at approximately 5PM.

Freedom Festival


Still seeking those Festival Vibes? Then you can book for Freedom Festival, which takes place between Friday 31st August - Sunday 2nd September 2018.

If you are a culture vulture and an artist in body and spirit, then you won’t want to miss the annual award-winning international arts festival. 2018 has the most exciting programme yet, with events spread across the city centre and further afield. There will be exhibitions, talks, music and spoken word performances. As always, you can grab a bite to eat from a variety of food and drink stalls, providing some of the tastiest food around. If you still looking for things to do after all that, then there’s the amazing circus tent to experience.
