TO ALL HULL CITY FANS
Hi everybody, my name is Hull City AFC. As you know, I've been held captive for around 3 years now.
It's been a tough time for me here at the KCOM. I've been kept hidden away and I understand there have been people here impersonating me. But they didn't do it very well, they spelt my name wrong, made my face completely different on my badge then made a real mess of all of my merchandise. And the prison guards tell me they've been upsetting all of you fans for the full 3 years I've been imprisoned. That's dreadful, it must stop.
I hope to be let out soon, I just can't wait to be released, clear my name and show my true colours. A while ago I heard the FA arranged my release but something must have gone wrong. It's great things have gone well on the pitch for the team, but it's not been the same without me has it? I will sort things out as soon as I get out.
I've heard most recently there are 3 rescue groups trying to get to me. Hopefully it won't be too long now. I know all true fans will recognise me as soon as I am back and restored to my proper place.
I've known a lot of your family and friends over the years who use to come and see me. And I know all of you who came to see me or supported me before I was imprisoned. Plus I am always looking to make new friends. So don't worry, I've been messed about with and given a hard time, but I'm tough.
I've been around for 112 years and I intend to be around for as long as you fans want me.
All the best, catch up with you soon I hope

PLACES DES ANGES
SATURDAY 2 JULY 2016
As Hull’s programme of summer events moves up a gear, tickets are available from 10am today (1 June 2016) for ‘Place des Anges’, the spectacular aerial event that is set to transform the night sky over Queens Gardens on Saturday 2 July.
10,000 free tickets are now up for grabs for the awe-inspiring show, which created and performed by acclaimed French company Gratte Ciel and presented by Hull 2017 and the Yorkshire Festival, in association with Amy Johnson Festival. It is an event that has dazzled audiences across the world and everyone seeing it in Hull can expect an unforgettable experience.
Beginning at 9:45pm, white clad angels – les anges – will appear high on rooftops around Hull College and Queens Gardens, before taking to the air for magical and occasionally mischievous antics above the crowds below. As the event reaches its climax thousands of white feathers will be released, falling from the sky in cascades, to create an extraordinary ‘snowstorm’ for the audience to dance and play in.
Martin Green, CEO and Director of Hull 2017, said: “Place des Anges is a thrilling experience that takes your breath away. In a summer packed full of fabulous events and activities, highlighting Hull’s position as a great city for culture, this is one that definitely should not be missed. As we prepare for 2017, it’s a stunning finale to the Yorkshire Festival and an exciting start to the Amy Johnson Festival. I urge everybody to make sure they get their hands on some tickets.”
Place des Anges is free and suitable for all ages and thousands of people registered for ticket alerts when the event was announced earlier this year. Tickets need to be booked in advance and are available on a first come first served basis. People can book up to six by going to www.hull2017.co.uk/placedesanges. With the show due to begin at 9:45pm, gates will open at 9:15pm and people are advised to allow sufficient time to get through the ticket check.
Supported by Hull 2017, the event is also the finale of the Yorkshire Festival, which runs from 16 June until 3 July, and marks the start of Amy Johnson Festival, which begins in Hull on Friday 1 July and runs until 6 September.
Yorkshire Festival’s Artistic Director, Matt Burman, said: “Place Des Anges is a fitting finale for this year’s stellar Yorkshire Festival line-up. It’s fantastic to be able to offer a free event of this scale, and to bring a world-renowned international company like Gratte Ciel to create something truly spectacular in the heart of Hull. The event is free, but tickets are limited so I’d urge people to act fast and ensure they don’t miss out on what promises to be unmissable, extraordinary night.”
People planning to see Place des Anges are encouraged to make a day of their visit. The Amy Johnson Festival will also be hosting Da Vinci Engineered in Zebedee’s Yard from 10am-5pm, featuring twelve faithful reproductions of Leonardo’s flight and wind machines loaned by the Da Vinci Museum in Florence. Free family entertainment throughout the day in Zebedee’s Yard will feature aerial acrobatics from Pif-Paf, madness and mayhem from Hull Carnival Arts and music from Hull Samba Band and Bandanarama, as well as a chance to see several of the giant artist designed moth sculptures close up.
Rick Welton, Director of Amy Johnson Festival, said: “Place des Anges is a fabulous way to launch the festival. It will be a fantastic curtain-raiser for two months of celebration when we’ll be telling the world about the remarkable life of Hull’s aviation heroine and giving the city a summer to remember.”
Those planning to attend Place des Anges should check the website for information about the best entrances for them to enter the event and links to information about road closures, parking, public transport and park and ride arrangements.
Place des Anges is part of the series of curtain raiser events in 2016, made possible through the support of Spirit of 2012, which invests in events as catalysts for change for people and communities across the UK.
