As part of Hull’s Heritage Open Weekend, and as part of City of Culture 2017 celebrations, you are welcomed to Jubilee Central. Join a tour of the building, as well as a talk charting the building’s history and future.
Located in the heart of Hull on King Edward Street, Jubilee Central has a rich history dating back to 1814. Once home to the Waltham Street Chapel, the Methodist Mission and even NatWest Bank, Jubilee Central is now home to Jubilee Church.
The main hall is the heart of the building, originally established as the Central Methodist Hall in 1960. The 700-seat auditorium is used for cultural events, past and present. This year the venue has hosted Hull 2017 City of Culture events including the Doc’n Roll Film Festival and John Grant’s North Atlantic Flux, which was broadcast, live on BBC Radio Three.
As well as a place of vibrant worship, Jubilee Central is known for its passion serving the community. It’s home to Hull Foodbank, Jubilee Life College and the Big Issue distribution centre for Hull.
Jubilee Central is now preparing to embark upon a major renovation project to open the front of the building to better connect with the newly pedestrianized King Edward Street. The front of the building will then house its new Café – catering social enterprise called ‘Full’.
Come and hear about the amazing history, learn about how Jubilee Central is engaging with the community, and see what’s in store for the future.
