Stage set for Hull Venue opening
Hull Venue, a £36M state-of-the-art music and events complex with a capacity of 3,500 people is nearing completion and will host its first live acts later this year.
Working on behalf of Hull City Council, BAM Construction is main contractor for the scheme and it has subcontracted James Killelea to fabricate, supply and erect all of the steelwork.
The Venue will allow the city to host large corporate conferences, exhibitions and trade shows, as well as concerts and sporting events.
The facility has been designed to be flexible and it can be reduced to a 2,500-capacity for an all-seated event and a 2,000m² exhibition space, as well as an 800-capacity auditorium.
According to Hull City Council, the Venue will also provide 30 full time jobs with more than 100 temporary jobs on event days, as well as an annual £13.5M boost to the city’s economy.
