Look around Hull's Trinity Market as it undergoes massive £3m facelift

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 25 Apr 2017

New light is literally being shed on Hull's historic Trinity Market.

As these exclusive pictures show, the £3m facelift of the Edwardian indoor market is transforming its look.

Gone is the former Rumours nightclub. In its place, new glazed arched windows provide views of Holy Trinity Church next door.

Also gone are the painted roof lights in the main food hall. Instead, new glazed panels allow natural light to flood into the space below.

With the first phase of the works due to be completed by the end of June, council project manager Jane Nelson said demand for stalls in the new-look food hall had been overwhelming.

"We are looking to relocate our existing stallholders while welcoming as many new stalls as we can," she said.

"There will eventually be 23 stalls in the main food hall area and we've had national as well as local interest from operators which is very encouraging.

"As you can see, we are well on the way to bringing back some of the market's original Edwardian splendour."

Original plans for a restaurant in the spot formerly occupied by Rumours have been shelved in favour of making it a more flexible space.

Mrs Nelson said the popularity of last week's first Hull Street Food Nights event in Trinity Square was hopefully a good sign of things to come.

"We are looking at creating plenty of space for seating in the main food hall to complement events in Trinity Square and the Old Town in general," she said.

Other design features in the facelift's first phase include the construction of a new mezzanine floor seating area, refurbished toilets and the installation of the same paving used in the city centre public realm works.

"Some of the new paving is already down and it looks fantastic," said Mrs Nelson."

The project's second phase will see the Grade II listed building's arcade link to Market Place being revamped with a completion date scheduled for Christmas.
