The day started well with a meeting and great coffee with the irrepressible Freddie Garland. Plans are afoot to bring the Hullywood Icons to life in the autumn, then Thieving Harry’s near the Marina for a cuppa, chance meeting with the remarkable John Moss who runs C4DI and is on the board for City of Culture, chatting about all things 2017, the spirit of Hull, secularism in the middle east, cycling and the press coverage for the Made in Hull event. Message received from Hullywood Tweeter Emma Palmer about feature on the I website, talk scheduled for 1-30.
Meet up with Darren Squires to talk about the ‘Iconoclast’ Cocktail for the opening event, we do Darren’s photo shoot, then on into town to see the blade, quick meeting at the BBC, then a quick dash to PC world interrupted by 2 phone interviews. The scheduled one for I website and the Withernsea Gazette polar opposites of the media spectrum in terms of outlook and audience. Give up on finding a little take around computer as I have to get back to Queens Gardens to photograph Richard Vergette a playwright and actor who I was at college with many moons ago.
Back to Beverley to babysit my 2 year old grandson Azrael for a couple of hours, chill out watching CBeebies, thankful that my phone has died hours ago. This is just a normal day in Hullywood.
