    Ended up in Kingstown near Hedon. Squid rings and chilli starters just waiting on mixed grill. Two pints of peroni.... very happy and comfy now.

    No thanks to the underestimated Street lack of food festival


    * in a way I'm glad it was too busy. It might encourage more similar

    Spencer Tunick's Sea Of Hull opens at the Ferens tomorrow (there's a private viewing for those who took part today).

    Looks like the aftermath of a poison gas attack.

    How is it street food though?

    How?

    Eating a croissant off Tesco's floor is a start but when you have eaten a doner kebab you found in a bin come back to me.

    Now that's street food.

    They think there could have been as many as 13,000 there last night, which was at least double what they were expecting.

    I'm back in't Ull next week for about a week. I really get the vibe that it is on the up big style. Is it possible to pick that up through reading stuff and pictures? I did the fish trail with my daughter last time I was home enjoyed every minute of it.

    I hope to get a ticket for the Sunlan game.

    I love our city.

    I guess but how many does it hold? In the article, they said the surrounding areas are to be used which would obviously allow for quite a few people.

    1800 standing (1200 if its all seated)

    The amphitheatre holds 350 so I doubt the overlooking bridge etc would hold many more

    No doubt there is a reason, and I think there will be more than one performance a day, I just thought that given it is usually in the Albert Hall that a bigger venue would be used

    I didn't know City Hall held that many! I've never been myself.
