Christmas Activities 2020

2020 was a long year, but we took the opportunity to lift spirits through a variety of cultural activities over the Christmas period.

Christmas Tree Trail

As an extension of our social action projects in Gipsyville and Peel Street, and as part of We Made This Hull‘s trail, we put up two beautiful 12ft Christmas trees in our project sites.

Both communities added decorations and, in the spirit of We Made This Hull, lots of them were handmade and recycled.

Local resident were free to pop by and add their own festive creations!

Thanks to Hull City Council and Greenland Seeds for their support.

Christmas Crafts

What’s Christmas without a bit of crafting?

We made some easy-to-follow activity sheets for residents of our project sites so that they can make Christmas decorations from the comfort of their own home, using items you can find around the house.

If you’d like to do the same, we’ve made these craft activities available to download here:


2020 was a tough year for lots of people, so we looked ahead to make wishes for 2021.

We encouraged everyone to hang a star in their window over Christmas to share your hopes and dreams for the New Year.

We asked those who took park to share it with us on social media using #HullWishUponAStar.
