The Deep is delighted to announce a Community Partnership with distinguished Hull company, Arco. Through a Community Partnership, the Deep with the help of Arco are preparing to re-open the doors to the public on the 27 July and begin a new chapter.
This natural partnership will build on the mutual values of both organisations who have always shared a home in the City of Hull. Arco and The Deep are equally dedicated to promoting the continued health and prosperity of the Humber region and re-building a strong future for our area and for the people who share our city.
Katy Duke, CEO The Deep explained “The closure of The Deep in response to Covid-19 has had long lasting financial implications on our charity and has changed the landscape for the foreseeable future. The Community Partnership with Arco has given us the support we needed to re-open our doors and prepare for a challenging and different future. At our core, both our organisations care about conservation, our community and the future of our city. We are delighted to be re-opening on the 27 July and welcoming our visitors back.”
Katy continues “We are extremely grateful for all the support shown to us over the last few months and our partnership with Arco, such an eminent organisation in the city, has been invaluable in helping ensure that The Deep will be a safe and enjoyable day out for all of our visitors.”
The Deep crew have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure government guidelines are adhered to, offering a safe and clean environment for visitors to enjoy. Noticeable changes will include directional signage, hand sanitising stations and timed ticket slots which will require pre-booking on-line.

Arco Managing Director, David Evison said, “The Deep and Arco share a home. We share the City of Hull. We share a community in the very heart of our City, in the vibrant fruit market. The continued health and prosperity of the Humber region is vital for us and the people who share our City. We are delighted to be working with The Deep, helping this incredible attraction stay safe for visitors.”
