Hull - City of Culture 2017

Good news today for the city of Hull as it was selected to be the UK's City of Culture in 2017

I spent a year in Hull between 1986 and 1987 at the University of Hull, training to be a geography teacher, and at that time there was a lot of culture, particularly the Hull Truck Theatre company, the film club at the Library, concerts in various venues, the birth of the Housemartins and music in local pubs close to where I lived.

Twenty five years on, the city has moved from its place as the No. 1 city in the 'Crap Towns' book to its new achievement.
How will the city gain from this accolade ? 
Would be a good long term study for local schools...
