    Overview

    The Humber Street Sesh started back in 2012 as an event to showcase local up and coming bands. Today there are over 200 acts across 14 stages, family fun areas with a creative arts marquee, street art with activities for all ages.

    As Business Angels the Citywide Partners recognise the potential for the arts and businesses working together to bring about regeneration in the city. We understand the importance this event has on bringing the community together and showcasing the city as a vibrant place to live, work and play.

    The event also stimulates new job/ career opportunities with over 1000 people involved in working at the 2 day event. This enables the partners to promote opportunities in the construction sector that most young people are not aware of, such as: Scaffolding and engineering.

    Key Features

    The Citywide partners were main sponsor for the creative arts marquee. Delivered by Scrap Store this year’s theme was housing and pirates and the young people had great fun in being creative and letting their imagination run wild whilst blinging up their houses.

    Outcomes

    • Over 30,000 people attended the event over the 2 days with social media and marketing reaching over 1.6 million individuals. The partnership made the decision to donate 45 of their wrist bands to both young people in care and through the Tigers Trust young NEET’s living in Orchard park so that they could have fun at the event and hopefully raise their aspirations to be involved in the industry.

    • The creative arts marquee had large numbers of families attend throughout the day with over 40 houses being made in to a range of different creations. We had an Alien Space Ship, Dinosaur house, Pirate Ship, tank and a sunken ship with a message in a bottle! Great fun and in 3rd place a £10 craft hamper for the most creative idea,2nd place £20 hamper for the best Sea theme house and the winner receiving a £30 hamper the best House!

    Roots to Roof School Programme

    The Roots to Roof final is a STEM and Enterprise activity promoting careers in Construction. In We are inspiring primary school children to understand more about the many different career opportunities in our industry and stress it is for girls and boys! We go into the classroom where they work in small teams and design a 2d model of a house including any Eco-friendly options, this is a hands on activity and we take in activity packs for them to use. They have a budget so have to work out costs and decide on materials to use, they then present their ideas to the class. We are promoting employability skills of teamwork, communication, budgeting and presentation skills.

    We then ask them to bring their ideas to life by building a 3d model using recycled materials. Industry Ambassadors work with the pupils at the launch and also go back to judge a winning model from each school that has participated, and this entry then goes through to the final. We have had excellent support from local employers and the Citywide Partnership with their sponsorship of the top 3 prizes and the best team player awards.

    This project has grown from 5 schools participating in 2018 to 11 schools in 2019 and we are looking forward to this growing on an annual basis so we can excite and inspire the next generation to make construction a career of choice.

    Key Features

    Delivered in partnership with 11 local and national construction companies, CITB, Hull City Council and Hull Training providing industry expertise throughout the programme. Pupils also had a tour around the construction centre at Hull Training, looking at a range of different trade roles

    Outcomes

    • 11 primary schools across the Humber region took part in the programme, with over 400 pupils engaged in developing a housing company and learning about all aspects of the industry

    • Prizes were awarded to the top 3 with the winning school receiving a cheque for £200, £150 for second runner up and £100 for 3rd. There was also recognition for one member from each school that had been the best team player. Every pupil received a goodie bag with items provided by all of the contractors involved in the programme
