The history of Hull’s Beverley Road

The second film in our Beverley Road Townscape Heritage Scheme series, created by local filmmakers Nova Studios. Beverley Road is one of the most historic areas of Hull, although in the past this has often been overlooked.

Since 2015, Hull City Council have been delivering the Beverley Road Townscape Heritage Scheme. The scheme will protect and celebrate the rich heritage and those who enjoyed time there over the centuries.

Through the scheme’s community engagement programme, local residents have told us countless stories of Beverley Road’s rich history of culture and entertainment. In this film, Nova Studios bring to life some of those stories. From special moments and world-famous artists, to iconic spaces and the legacy of Beverley Road’s cultural communities.

The Beverley Road Townscape Heritage Scheme is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, with thanks to National Lottery players.

The scheme has included repair and restoration grants to local property owners, public realm improvements, and a wide-ranging community engagement programme which includes heritage walks and talks, work with local schools, the creation of a new heritage trail and collaborations with community organisations.
