Come on a trip from Hull to York on the Dean’s Marine barge George Dyson:

Open Bridges Hull UK award winning short film with musique concrète soundtrack. To watch the film settle down in a comfy chair, turn the lights down & the volume up and soak it up, it’s an immersive experience.

A River Full of Stories film featuring a trip down the River Hull on board MV Syntan with interviews telling real stories of life on the river in its heyday, filmed on board the motor barge Syntan, sloop Spider T and in Hull Maritime Museum.

Open Bridges is an independent not for profit Hull/East Yorkshire based project which made history when for the first, and only time, all 13 of the bridges over the River Hull raised, swung or closed simultaneously splitting the city of Hull in two at 20:17 hours on the autumn equinox, 22nd September 2017.
