On Saturday 13th May 2017 from 10am-4pm Hull High Street will be transported back to the middle ages when the medieval Hanseatic League was at its peak. A ship has just arrived and market day is in full swing. The townsfolk are going about their business but all have their own secrets to hide. Watch as the story unravels.
Re-enactors will line the street – spot the baker, candle stick maker, incense trader and fishing net weaver. The medieval Mint will join us again – giving you the chance to hammer your own coin – along with the popular Potter and everyone’s favourite fire breathing Jester, Peterkin the Fool.
Music from Hautebois and travelling minstrels, Merrie Noyse, will float down the street as you immerse yourself in medieval Hull. Take care not to find yourself locked in the stocks!
New for 2017 is a mini farm – a chance to learn about livestock in the middle ages and cuddle a lamb at the same time!
Celebrate the modern Hanse in The Museums Quarter garden with traditional customs from our Northern European partners. Dance, song, storytelling and craft can be enjoyed by all. Whet your appetite and visit food, drink and market stalls. Try your hand at a range of children’s crafts and activities.
Join in as the story of medieval Hull is told and celebrate Hull’s connection to the Hanseatic League, both past and present.
