We’d rather go to Hull, too

A favourite news story of ours recently is this article from London based journalist Stephanie Hawthorn who found that she could get a full weekend in Hull, including travel, accommodation, theatre tickets for two, and a trip to The Deep for less than two tickets to the same show at the Royal Opera House in London.

Puffins ready and waiting for their forever home

Have you seen the puffins of the Puffins Galore trail in the East Riding? The popular trail was 42 puffins, decorated by artists, scattered around the East Riding of Yorkshire in places such as Spurn Point, Beverley, Hornsea, and all the way up to Bempton. Well, you can now own your own by buying one at auction on Saturday 13th May. They will all be together one last time and available to view from the 5th May.
