Culture Train Hedon
The Culture Train Tour 2022 will once again bring a taste of the Hull music scene to St Augustine’s Church, Hedon on Saturday, 6 August, starting at 7.30 pm.
The project funded by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s ‘Active Creative’ arts fund takes established musicians to play to a wide range of communities across East Yorkshire. During 2022 this includes dates at Cottingham, Howden, Hedon, Driffield and Beverley.
The third date of this year’s tour brings musicians to play at St Augustine’s Church in Hedon on Saturday 6th August with a lineup of Graham Graham Beck, Sarah Shiels, Jackson D and Hedon favourites, Cuba Drive as headliners. These are four acclaimed acoustic acts and a large crowd is expected for the free concert.
The first band will be on at 7.30 pm so people are advised to come early. Culture Train Hedon is FREE. Come along and enjoy a taste of the Hull music scene. Refreshments will be available within the church
The Culture Train project was first held in 2017 to help take music from the City of Culture to communities that were not touched by events linked to the 2017 Year of Culture such as Hutton Cranswick or Nafferton via trains running from Paragon Station along the Hull to Bridlington Rail line. This is the fifth year of this project and so far around a hundred acts have performed in towns and villages across East Yorkshire from Goole to Bridlington and Brough to Market Weighton. The first date of this year’s tour was at St Mary’s Church, Cottingham as part of the Cottingham Springboard Festival.
Project lead Chris Warkup of Quiet Riot Arts is looking forward to the project; “This is a great opportunity to promote Hull music outside of the city and continues our project to bring talented musicians to churches and offers a chance to see great local music within your community once again – and at such wonderful atmospheric venues.
“It is all free so check it out and a big thank you to the Active Creative fund for creating this opportunity for people to get out and see live music once again.”
