Hull Venue is a state-of-the-art, music and events complex with up to 3,500 capacity, that will allow Hull to attract large corporate conferences, exhibitions and trade tours as well as major touring concerts, stand-up comedy, family shows and sporting events. The plans include the building of the new centre, alongside the rebuilding of Osborne Street carpark and additional public spaces in a currently derelict area on Myton Street behind Princes Quay.

The centre will have the flexibility to reduce to a 2,500 all-seated event and a 2,000m2 exhibition space plus 800 capacity conference auditorium. It is also predicted that the scheme will deliver 30 full time jobs with 100 – 150 temporary jobs on event days.
