Thursday Lates

One Thursday a month, Humber Street Gallery will be showcasing new commissions relating to the themes of exhibitions on display in the venue. Art inspires art and these regular events will take many forms; dance, music, spoken word, performance art and more.

On these Thursdays the gallery spaces will also be open beyond their usual closing time of 5pm, so come and check out the exhibitions on display and then join us for an evening of culture!


Upcoming Thursday Lates:

An evening of new performance work by artists who are currently taking part in our INTER_CHANGE programme, including Sean Azzopardi, Claire Holditch and Emily Oetegenn. Expect to see spoken word, live musical performances and art by some of Hull’s most exciting creative talent.

Thursday Lates: Out Loud Scratch Night with Middle Child and Silent Uproar

Thursday 24 – Saturday 26 March
6:30pm doors, 7pm start
Humber Street Gallery

Casino by Larner Wallace-Taylor

It’s January 1974 and Linda and Tina have had it with Wigan. They’re planning their escape, away from the strikes and the power cuts. But when Tina’s brother Ant introduces them to his new favourite club, they’re drawn into a world of Northern Soul, fashion and amphetamines that they never knew existed. They’ve finally found a place to call home – but how long can they hold onto it?

Out Loud is a scratch night for writers in Hull to see and hear their scripts performed by professional actors in front of a friendly audience for the first time, produced by Middle Child and Silent Uproar.
