Humberside Holidays Overview
Humberside was a county in North East England until 1996, when it was divided into smaller areas. The name is still used as a geographic reference and by certain institutions such as the local police force and airport, and refers to land either side of the Humber estuary.
Towns in Humberside include Grimsby and Scunthorpe, although the main city is Kingston upon Hull, generally known simply as Hull. This is one of Yorkshire’s key cities, and is an up and coming waterfront location. The last few years have seen a transformation in Hull, and there are now excellent museums, parks and gardens, a variety of festivals and events.

Hull Comedy Festival
The fastest growing festival of its kind in the UK, the Hull Comedy Festival takes place over two weeks in October. It operates as a fringe festival and doesn’t charge venues, organisations, promoters, or performers to participate. Started in 2006, the festival attracts big name comedians, and has an extensive programme of comedy performances. The festival aims to promote the social good that can be achieved through comedy.
The Musicport World Music Festival began in 2000 to promote live music in Whitby and the surrounding areas. Due to its incredible success, it has now moved to Bridlington Spa, a venue that has had a major refurbishment. The festival attracts artists in a variety of musical genres, from all over the world and takes place over three days in October.
Beverley Food Festival
The Beverley Food Festival takes place annually for one day in October, at the Beverly Market Place. As well as stalls selling local produce, there are street entertainers, a popular cookery theatre marquee where chefs can give demonstrations, a charity barbeque, and various activities for children and families.
