On the autumnal equinox 2017 during Hull City of Culture’s Freedom Season for the first time in the city’s history all 13 of Hull’s bridges closed simultaneously – at 20:17.

Still to come, the Open Bridges exhibition and film. Keep an eye on the website for details.

Freedom or freedom withheld? Historically Hull, UK, has played a leading role in campaigns for social and political freedom. But the only way to truly understand something is to experience it…

Open Bridges is an exploration of freedom, marking the vital role bridges play in our everyday lives with a river journey, the mustering of historic vessels representing three centuries and the world premiere of a new musique concrète commission – Moments in Time – by BAFTA winning Hull based composer John Stead.

Open Bridges is an independent Hull based project.
