Hull Minster is one of only two UK venues to host the works – and the only one in the north of England.

Leading Hull businesses are backing a groundbreaking exhibition bringing the wonders of the Sistine Chapel to the city.

Michelangelo – A Different View will allow people to see work by the renaissance genius up close.

The exhibition is being staged at the Hull Minster from Tuesday 8 October to Monday 18 November.

Hull Minster is one of only two UK venues to host the works – and the only one in the north of England.

Hull businesses are backing the Minster’s ambition to make the exhibition free to enter, led by exhibition patrons Arco, the UK’s leading safety company, and regeneration leader Wykeland Group.

Hull Trains has also signed up as exhibition painting partner, while Alan Wood & Partners, Berry’s Jewellers, KFM, Meehan Media & Comms, Rollits and RE:Group ate also supporting.

The Sistine Chapel exhibition has toured major European cities before coming to the Uk, first in Winchester.

Bishop Frank White, interim minister of Hull Minster, said the support of so many leading companies would allow the church to make the exhibition free to enter.

He said: “We’re delighted that key companies and significant employers in the local community are supporting this major exhibition taking place in the Minster. Their support is a huge encouragement to us.”
