Trinity Indoor Market on the move
Work will soon begin on the £1.6m refurbishment of Trinity Indoor Market with the Trinity House Lane entrance to close from this Saturday (15 October).
Existing stalls from the food hall have already moved to the mall area and users of the market are being encouraged to use the entrances at Lowgate and Hepworth’s Arcade for the duration of the project. New signage directing people to the alternative entrances is currently being installed around the market and arcade.
Market customers are also being offered the chance to win a hamper of Trinity Market goodies as a thank you for their support during the project. Customers currently shopping at the market are given a postcard which they simply present at the stall’s new locations to be automatically entered into a draw.
Garry Taylor, City Major Projects Manager said:
“Trinity Indoor Market has a very long history in Hull and it is only right that as part of the regeneration of the city centre, the market also receives a facelift.
“We have worked closely with traders to ensure they remain in the market throughout the project and I would like to thank them for their cooperation during this time.
“I am confident that this refurbishment will create a market the traders and residents of Hull can be proud of.”
The refit of the Grade 2 listed building and extension will upgrade and repair the main market spaces, stalls and the Market Place frontage with the intention of creating a busy, vibrant indoor market.
The main market spaces will have an enhanced food offering with a significant element of the development being a restaurant to partially occupy the building on North Church Side opposite Holy Trinity Church.
The project is funded predominantly by the LEP with £1.35m funding coming from the Regional Growth fund and the top up of £250k from the council’s capital programme budget.
