Each vigil holds watch, together we stand.
A unique structure designed for the city of Hull by Benjamin Tovo, the shelter is where The Hull Vigil takes place.
Located on top of Hull College’s Campus overlooking Queens Gardens and the William Wilberforce Statue, the shelter has been constructed by Hull-based engineering firms. Made by Hull for Hull, for the first time, the shelter has been built to give unobstructed views to the east and west.
Standing alone but together, the vigil will step inside the wood and glass structure, without their phone or other distraction, to watch over the city for an hour at sunrise and sunset - looking out across the Humber to the east, the urban spread to the north and out across the suburbs and countryside to the west.
Illuminated during the hour of each Vigil, the shelter is fully accessible.
Further instructions will be given to participants about where to meet and how to enter the building.
