Rounding off our celebration of UK City of Culture 2017 we are sharing memories of living close to Kingston upon Hull. Barton has numerous historical and contemporary links with the city – market boats sailed between Hull and Barton until the 1950s, and ropes made in Barton were shipped worldwide from Hull and the raw materials ferried across the Humber up to the 1980s. We even shared the Hull postcode for a long time! Generations of Bartonians have worked and studied in the city while its museums, shops and theatres continue to captivate us. Come and share your own memories of Hull – and getting there by ferry!

Annual General Meeting (7.30pm)

The event takes place at the Joseph Wright Hall, Queen Street at 8.15pm. For up to date information visit: www.bartoncivicsociety.co.uk
