What's going on? Events InWithaBang In With a Bang was the fantastic and spectacular launch event to mark the opening of the Hull City of Culture 2017. 25,000 lucky ticket holders gathered to witness one of the biggest firework displays Hull has ever seen and one that was on par with displays seen in London and at the Olympic Games across the world. 15,000 fireworks where launched from two barges situated in the river Humber at 2017 (or 8.17pm) and the display was visible for all to see on both sides of the river bank. InWithABang is part of the "Made in Hull" which is the first season within the Hull city of Culture year.
