Our northern cities are excelling! In case you hadn’t noticed, 2017 marks Hull’s year as the UK City of Culture. We’ve been commissioned by Visit Hull and East Yorkshire to look at creating a series of cultural itineraries along the Transpennine route starting in Hull and taking in Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool to test with international tour operators.
As well as Hull’s bumper cultural year. Manchester hosts the 6th Manchester International Festival, Liverpool celebrates the 50th anniversary of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album as part of the 50 Summers of Love cultural programme and Leeds celebrates 50 years of the West Indian Carnival, to name a few highlights. Focusing specifically on the Dutch and German markets, the cultural itineraries will encourage visitors to move from city to city along the Transpennine corridor.
