Hull has been named UK City of Culture 2017.
My Mum was born there but not a big fan of the place. Growing up, we never visited despite living just an hour’s drive away and Mum never had good things to say about it. (Too many childhood war-time memories of the Luftwaffe flying over and Christmas spent in an air raid shelter).
So recently I took her back for a day to see what she made of it in 2017.
