Hull is a city filled with people… and occasionally those people do things. Some of those things are kind of interesting. Some are pretty funny too. Others are actually quite impressive, and others… well, they’re just weird.
The thing is, we think every one of these stories deserves to be remembered. They are what makes Hull the city it is today. The weird, the wonderful, the obscure, the fascinating and the factual all permeate every street and every community in the city, and now these anecdotes are celebrated through our Alternative Heritage plaques.
“ Our plaques celebrate our history, from Hull’s charismatic folk, to lore spread in playgrounds (or let’s be honest, online!). Whether factual or fictitious, the contents of the plaques come straight from the heart of Hull. ”
