As part of the 2017 Arts & Humanities Research Council and British Academy’s ‘Being Human’ Festival, the University of Hull is pleased to invite you to join us in a guided coach tour/walk around the area associated with Hubert Nicholson’s east coast novel Sunk Island (1956).
The tour will take in specific landmarks and include performed readings from the novel. It will begin with introductory talks and a Yorkshire lunch at Ottringham Village Hall before moving on to Sunk Island finishing in Holy Trinity Church and Heritage Centre with light refreshments and an exhibition on Nicholson and the history and geography of Sunk Island, with local recollections and photographs of the 1953 east coast flood.
The event begins at Ottringham Village Hall at 11.30am.
For those travelling from the University of Hull, there is a coach pick up from the Main Entrance at 10.30am.
