The rescue of the National Picture Theatre

-Speaker Hilary Byers


Stepney Station, Beverley Road, HULL, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU3 1TY


The National Civilian WW2 Memorial Trust has for over 20 years been working towards saving the remains of the National Picture Theatre on Beverley Road in Hull

This is a structure which is Listed for its historic interest as the last ordinary civilian building in England surviving from WW2 in its bombed state.


Now at last some real progress is being made on preserving the structure, thanks to the National Lottery players, Hull City Council and the Trust.


Trustee Hilary Byers will talk about the early years of the cinema and the fateful night of 18th March 1941. She will bring you up to date with progress, including recent work to stablise the building and will explain plans for the future.


Perhaps you have photos or memories of the National Picture Theatre or Beverley Road? Bring them along!
