MASTERPIECES IN FOCUS FROM THE ROYAL COLLECTION: VAN DYCK, CHARLES I

28th April, 10am (Free)
Ferens Art gallery

Through an ongoing partnership, the Royal Collection Trust bring a masterpiece by Sir Anthony van Dyck to Hull for the first time. The triple portrait of Charles I, begun in 1635 and finished by June 1636, portrays the King from three viewpoints, each with a differently patterned lace collar and coloured clothing.

The unusual format chosen for the portrait was due to its proposed use as a reference work for the Italian sculptor Lorenzo Bernini to create a marble bust of Charles I.

ENDURING EYE: THE ANTARCTIC LEGACY OF SIR ERNEST SHACKLETON AND FRANK HURLEY

Until 3 June, 11am (Free)
Maritime Museum

100 years after the epic expedition, Hurley’s photographs remain one of the greatest ever photographic records of human survival.

Scanned at the highest resolution from the Royal Geographical Society’s incomparable collection of the original glass plate and celluloid negatives, Hurley’s intrepid documentation of the expedition can be seen in stunning detail through a presentation of large format images in various mediums.

SHALAMAR

3 May, 7:30pm (£29.50)
Hull City Hall

As Shalamar, Howard Hewitt and Jeffrey Daniel sold over 25 million records worldwide and collected no less than 100 gold, silver and platinum awards. They always whip the crowd into a frenzy with classics such as “A Night To Remember”, “I Can Make You Feel Good”, “Friends”, “Make That Move”, “There It Is” and “I Owe You One”.

HULL STREET FOOD NIGHT

3 May, 4pm (Free)

Zebedee’s Yard

We can make you feel good with some great food on offer at the Hull Street food night, come into the city centre after work and enjoy a drink and something to eat with family and friends in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

WHISKY GALORE

1 – 12 May, 7:30pm (£12 – £22.50)

Hull Truck

Compton Mackenzie’s internationally recognised classic gets a new breathe of life from Philip Goulding and Kevin Shaw. The islanders of Great and Little Todday are dismayed to find their whisky supply dwindling as the UK government diverts the precious stuff to the Americans, in an attempt to bribe them into supporting the British war-effort.

When the whisky runs out completely it seems like the end of the world… But then a 50,000 whisky bottle cargo is shipwrecked close by the islands, and welcome relief seems to be at hand.
