EXHIBITION PERFORMANCE EVENTS Humber Fruit Brokers Gallery. Sat 16th April Sat 7th May. Opening times every Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm. Preview event on Fri 15th closing party on Sat 7th May from 7pm.

Exhibition, events, performances and workshops organised by studio holders at Shirethorn House will take place from 16th April to 7th May 2022 at Humber Fruit Brokers Gallery.

Shirethorn House appeared on the creative map of Hull in July 2021 providing studio space for artists and creators, and has grown into a community ranging from emerging to established artists, covering a wide range of art forms including painters, photographers, theatre practitioners, musicians, cartoonists, and circus performers. 

For the “SHH!” (Shirethorn House Happenings!) exhibition at Humber Fruit Brokers Gallery on Humber Street, studio holders have come together to show their work, create performances and host a range of events. The work shown will express the creative melting pot that is Shirethorn House and highlight the opportunities and synergies that happen in the space. 

In addition to the preview and closing events, you can look forward to Comic Stall Days by PhatComics, a St George’s Day provocation by various artists, led by Michael Barnes-Wynters,  Shirethorn House instigator, and on May 1st new work ‘The Strange Case of Mary Toft’ by Hull-based Women of Words. Events will be continuously added to the programme – keep an eye out on our social channels!
