Reminiscing on the Syntan

‘Open Bridges: A River Full Of Stories’, gathering stories to preserve the heritage of the River Hull, its bridges and the people and vessels which have used it over the years. With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, we will produce a film, exhibition, website and a book which will be given to each library and museum in Hull and the East Riding.

Another great day sharing memories of life on the River Hull over the years for Open Bridges: A River Full Of Stories.

Do you have memories about life on and around the River Hull over the years? If you would like to talk to us about sharing your memories contact us during July August and September 2018. Click here to get in touch

Open Bridges made history when for the first time all 13 of the bridges over the River Hull in the UK’s City of Culture 2017 raised, swung or closed simultaneously splitting the city of Hull in two at 20:17 hours on 22nd September 2017.  Historic vessels sailed down the river, met by 21st century tugs, to the sound of a new musique concrète work by composer John Stead.

Open Bridges is an independent Hull/East Yorkshire based project.
