Hull City of Culture 2017

Hull was the UK City of Culture in 2017 and remains so until the title is passed on to Coventry which is to be the UK City of Culture 2021.

The Deep was one of the original 'Bid Angels' that supported Hull's successful bid to have the honour of being the UK City of Culture and collaborated on the delivery of a number of projects during the year itself.

Hull Nature Triangle

The Yorkshire Nature Triangle project is led by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and aims to raise the profile of East Yorkshire’s fantastic array of nature-tourism attractions. From The Deep in Hull, to the iconic Spurn Point and north to the puffins of Flamborough and Whitby’s whale watching, the region has a wealth of wildlife waiting to be discovered. The project works closely with conservation bodies, tourism agencies and also provides support to local businesses helping them to make the most out of this growing, worldwide market.

Hull University

The University of Hull’s status as an anchor institution for the region and its passion for discovery and passing on knowledge makes it the ideal partner for The Deep’s Learning Centre. Both recognised for excellence, the University and The Deep share a commitment to engaging with our local community – helping to raise academic aspirations among young people and inspiring future generations of pioneering scientists, researchers and conservationists.

Humber Bondholders
