Went into Hull on both days, amazing proliferation of events and entertainments, Sat. Gay Pride in Queen’s Gardens (cordoned off, ticket event), BBC Proms concert from the amphitheatre which use to be dry dock near mouth of R. Hull, street entertainments and concerts from temporary stage erected west of Marina lock entrance. Weather fine most of day but rain started teatime and continued for much of night. Sun. rain am as slow moving front lingered along North Sea coast, showers pm, very unfortunate for outdoor events, Queen’s Gardens walked through and went to EE shop to get assistance with phone problems.
