after finding itself in fin`ncial difficulties. Hull Truck has been

given ?400,000 by the Arts Council and Hull City Council. ?300,000 is

:01:19.:01:27.

coming from the arts Council. The authority says it will have more

:01:28.:01:30.

control over the theatre to ensure it doesn't run out of money in the

:01:31.:01:34.

future. Hull Truck is expected to have an important role to play when

Hull becomes City of Culturd in 2017. Jo Makel reports.

:01:38.:01:46.

It was the scene of jubilant celebrations when Hull heard it had

:01:47.:01:53.

been made the city of culture for 2017. Hull Truck Theatre is seen as

:01:54.:01:57.

central to the regeneration and investment it is hoped that status

:01:58.:01:59.

will bring. But, the theatre's will bring. But, the theatrd's

It is about taking for the future. It is a theatre with a national

its financial targets. But lanagers its financial targets. But lanagers

people in Hull the last timd they people in Hull the last time they

went to Hull Truck. We have never been. Why not? We seldom go to the

:03:11.:03:21.

theatre. We like going to London to see a West End show, but I don't

:03:22.:03:27.

even think about it up here. I have never been in my life? I have no

:03:28.:03:35.

interest, I'll be honest. Hull Truck's youth Theatre is showcasing

:03:36.:03:39.

young writers tonight, and lore community projects like this will be

:03:40.:03:42.

key to the theatre's future. The City Council has asked for a

key to the theatre's future. The City Council has asked for ` revised

:03:46.:03:46.

business plan in return for its extra investment. Some councillors

:03:47.:03:51.

are concerned. I do see that they could be asking for more money, but

:03:52.:03:55.

I hope they see this is an expensive sticking plaster and realisdd this

theatre, but this is a time when local authorities are trying to find

:04:09.:04:11.

new ways of running leisure facilities. The City Council also

:04:12.:04:12.

needs to find guarantees that it is needs to find guarantees that it is

:04:13.:04:18.

worth the money. Joining me now is a counsellor,

:04:19.:04:23.

deputy leader of Hull City Council. Some people watching might think

:04:24.:04:25.

this is a lot of money to b`il out a this is a lot of money to bail out a

:04:26.:04:27.

theatre. Is that unfair or `ctually theatre. Is that unfair or `ctually

:04:28.:04:30.

quite accurate? I think it is unfair quite accurate? I think it hs unfair

:04:31.:04:35.

because Hull Truck is a significant part of the whole cultural landscape

:04:36.:04:38.

and we need to make sure it's a voice for the future. But there are

:04:39.:04:42.

no blank cheques here, and going forward, we need to make sure they

:04:43.:04:46.

have the right business plan to be sustainable. So, at a time when the

:04:47.:04:49.

council is cutting back on libraries, it is losing jobs, the

:04:50.:04:54.

hands`on history museum is going, people will be surprised th`t

just about council facilities, but just about council facilitids, but

about the voluntary sector in just about council facilities, but

city. We have invested heavhly about the voluntary sector hn the

:05:21.:05:24.

Would it be almost cruelty to see one of the country's top thdatre

:05:25.:05:27.

one of the country's top theatre companies just go? It would, because

:05:28.:05:34.

out of London there are few theatre companies that people have heard of,

:05:35.:05:38.

and Hull Truck is one of those. They need to ensure that some of those

:05:39.:05:42.

people you spread to earlier on to get involved and come to thd

get involved and come to the theatre. Yes, the council s`ys

theatre. Yes, the council s`ys in the statement that they want more

:05:47.:05:49.

control on programming changes. Would that mean less of the Tempest

:05:50.:06:02.

and more What No Pyjamas? It shouldn't be one size fits `ll. We

:06:03.:06:05.

need to make sure that people are willing to go to Hull Truck and feel

it is their theatre to get hnvolved it is their theatre to get hnvolved

with. But there is a reason we are the City of Culture for 2017. Hull

:06:13.:06:18.

disposable income and Hull Truck has not been immune from that recession.

not been immune from that rdcession. Do you think it has been managed

:06:44.:06:50.

badly? We have sought some assurances that it will be better

:06:51.:06:52.

managed in future, and we have but one of our own finance officers on

:06:53.:06:56.

the board to ensure there is extra financial rigour added for the

:06:57.:06:59.

future. Thank you for coming in tonight.

:07:00.:07:01.

Do you think the council were right to give Hull Truck the bailout?

Perhaps your job is under threat at the authority ` would you r`ther

Perhaps your job is under threat at the authority ` would you rather the

just stayed out of this and left Hull Truck to sort itself ott? Do

In a moment: Plans for Scunthorpe United to make a quick move to a new

that if more turbines are built here, they'll leave this resting

they would only make an objection they would only make an objection

Chris in Hull says: A huge sculpture that was m`de at a

:11:54.:12:33.

family run factory in Hull has taken centre stage at the world's busiest

:12:34.:12:36.

airport. It's one of the biggest sculptures ever constructed in

:12:37.:12:39.

Europe and could be seen by a billion people. At 260 feet long,

:12:40.:12:45.

it's bigger that a jumbo jet and had to be transported from Hull to

London in small sections. Anne`Marie Tasker was at Heathrow to sde it

:12:49.:12:50.

Tasker was at Heathrow to see it unveiled.

:12:51.:13:03.

It has been for years from conception to completion, and today,

Slipstream was officially unveiled. The artist, Richard Wilson, designed

:13:13.:13:17.

this huge sculpture, mirrorhng the flight of a stunt game, but it was

:13:18.:13:20.

actually constructed by a tdam of 60 actually constructed by a team of 60

:13:21.:13:24.

metalworkers in Hull. We have had almost four years of working,

crunching numbers, cutting letal, welding and what all the processes

to assemble it up in the air on these four of the 11 columns that

motorway to be assembled at Heathrow. There has been a strong
