Work commenced in 1903 and the building was in use by 1909 but unfortunately the exact opening date remains unknown. In 1911, the organ, built by Forster and Andrews of Hull, was installed in the main hall. Today it remains one of the largest working organs in use in the country and monthly organ recitals are held at the hall.Hull City Hall offers a wide range of events each year, hosting top international names in contemporary live music as well as headline comedy acts, the world’s leading orchestras, celebrities, adventurers, drama, musicals, opera and more.
