New Concert Venue To Create 500 Jobs In Hull

A new concert, exhibition, events and conference venue with an attached Four Star hotel facility is set to create up to 500 new full or part time jobs in Hull.

If the proposals for the ambitious new Hull venue get passed then the £42 million development will be built near to the Princess Quay Shopping Centre and will have a 3,500 seat capacity. The plans also feature a 150-bedroom accommodation facility which will create a number of hotel jobs in the city centre of Hull.

Hull City Council will put up almost 75% of the investment needed to see the deal come to fruition, with the balance to be funded by private investors including Princess Quay owners CIT and their partners the Wykeland Group.

Hull City Councillor Steven Bayes said that a top-notch, purpose-built events and conference centre had been a major ingredient which had been missing from the city. The new plans would make the city a top visitor destination and bring hundreds of new jobs to the local economy said the councillor.

“Delivery of [such an events facility] has always been seen as a problem in the past because of the high capital costs and the potential revenue implications - but we believe the time is right to show that Hull has the confidence to deliver on something like this. It is a lot of money but we are convinced it will also bring a large amount of money into the Hull economy. Most importantly, it will deliver 500 long-term jobs for our local workforce and young people,” said Mr Bayes.

Following hot on the heels of last week’s announcement of a £25 million transformation plan for Hull city centre ahead of the city’s status as City of Culture 2017, the news of the new venue was also welcomed by board members of the Hull Bondholders Scheme, a network of over 200 businesses which work together to promote the Humber region of the UK.

“We are delighted to see major projects such as this being brought forward and applaud Hull City Council’s commitment of significant funds to enhance the city’s leisure, tourism and business facilities. There’s a real energy in Hull at the moment as the city is prepared for 2017 and beyond, with a legacy of a transformed city centre, thousands of new jobs and a heightened profile as a place to visit, invest and do business,” said the Bondholders’ Anja Hazebroek.
