Children's magazine marks Hull City of Culture

Studio Anorak, the creators of children's magazine Anorak, is to publish a new children’s magazine to celebrate Hull becoming the UK’s city of culture.

Hello Hull will be a unisex magazine for primary school aged children, featuring games, poems and facts about the city. It will also act as a “log book”, allowing readers to record their “cultural activity” over the course of 2017.

There be four editions of the magazine, which will be given to every primary school pupil in key stage 1 and 2 student in the city. It will also be available in the city’s libraries.

The partnership is funded by Hull UK, City of Culture 2017, the organisation tasked with promoting Hull as a city of culture.

The organisation’s chair Rosie Millard said: “Hello Hull is a key part of our learning programme, which builds upon Hull’s rich history of innovators, radical thinkers and creators and uses the power of culture to inspire a new population of thinkers and creative talent in Hull. The magazine is one of the ways we are offering young people and their families the opportunity to get really involved in Hull 2017 and learn more about their city and the world around them.”

The first edition is out this month and the second will be published in February.
