Coventry to be UK City of Culture 2018

Hull has been named the UK's next City of Culture, beating Leicester, Dundee and Swansea Bay to the right to hold the title in 2017.

Hull, known for being the home of poet Philip Larkin, the Ferens gallery and the Truck theatre, will follow the 2013 City of Culture, Derry-Londonderry.

The UK government chooses a new destination every four years, with the aim of helping tourism and the economy.

Hull council leader Stephen Brady said winning was "a real game-changer".

Think this was just a mix up and the panel who decided were given the difinition of culture, searched the UK and found that Hull was the perfect selection.

Problem was they were given the biological verb meaning of culture:

1. maintain (bacteria, etc.) in conditions suitable for growth.

To encourage tourism and the local economy did they not consider a name change first?

Just a few miles North of me they put a tremendous effort into the bid and bringing the community together. It has a long way to go but the focus of this should help. Well happy looking forward to seeing what they do. They certasinly were not favourites with lots assuming Dundee or Swansea.

Woop woop, well done Hull. as I live here now I can say it was well received and deserved as we got behind our bid more than other places.

If Croydon got City of culture, we would all say how laughable it is. Saying that somewhere si shit does not mean you are inherently saying your place is better or beautiful.

the sad fact of it all is with their poverty and huge families to feed, they'll still bring twice as many fans to Selhurst Park than we will to the KCiro.
