Wyke confirmed as Cultural Icon of Hull

Promotional advert for the Kings of Hull

Wyke has been acknowledged as a cultural icon for Hull in the promotional material for Kings Of Hull, a comedy written and directed by John Godber.

According to the Hull 2017 website, “The Kings of Hull tells the remarkable story of the King family across three generations. From life on the docks, to Hull prison, a lottery win and success in the coal trade; this is a family whose sons and daughters are struggling to cope in a changing world. The Kings are a family bonded by love but divided by rugby, a river and sibling rivalry. Join us at their Golden Wedding, before the gloves come off; for a celebration of life in town, from the 1960s through to Brexit and beyond. Whether it’s love, hate, success or failure, the Kings always come out fighting.”

The play will be performed at the newly renovated Hull New Theatre from 27th September-7th October.
