City of Culture 2017 Kingston-upon-Hull hosts various events throughout each and every year.
Take the city's Big Bus day and our review from 2015.
"The Big Bus day Hull 2015 was held Saturday September 19. The sun shone and the crowds rolled in. It was a busy old time around the 'Old Town' area of Hull with cafes, pubs and restaurants doing a roaring trade.
The free to enter, council owned and operated, Transport Museum was filled to the rafters when we dropped in around lunchtime Saturday. The amount of people we encountered around the city centre that day indicates it was busier still as the afternoon rolled on.
The best way to share the day is with a few images of ours from in and around the transport museum.
Special mention to the young man with young son both dressed in local bus company's uniform. We were having a dumb day and it took time for us to cotton on when the adult told us the boy was a celebrity-aka Minnie Driver!
It was the first Big Bus Day we have visited but it won't be the last, hopefully.
Bus enthusiasts flocked to the event but it was good fun and a great day out whether buses are your thing or not.
2015 was a bumper year for events in Hull which was a promising start in the run up to the city's year in the spotlight as UK City of Culture 2017.
The bonus in 2015 was most events luckily experienced good weather. Well it is Hull, south Yorkshire and close to the North Sea.
[From the Big Bus Day on Facebook September 21-Thanks to everyone who came to Big Bus Day on Saturday, we had over 7,000 visitors, and raised lots of money for charity! We'll update you on a total later this week when all the donations are collated and counted, and we'll add some pictures of the day to this page later. Thanks to everyone for sharing their photos of the event on this page, love seeing your pictures!]"
The annual Royal Horticultural Society, Chelsea Flower Show for 2017 gets underway May 23 and runs until May 27. Not long when you consider the huge effort that goes into perfecting the sensational garden and flower displays on offer.
Worth a visit if you are in London? You bet it is
The first Chelsea Flower Show was held in 1913 so 2013 staged the event's 100-year anniversary.
Established in the grounds of Chelsea Royal Hospital in London in 1913, it was a roaring success and is now a world-famous event. It has been held annually apart from some gaps during the two world wars.
To mark the 100-year anniversary Chelsea Flower Show pushed the boat out. That said, each year there are some displays which are truly amazing.
Final preparations will soon be underway but the show's worst enemy could scupper efforts, namely bad weather. In recent years, Britain has experienced rain and cold weather in May and June and even snow in some parts of the UK.
This year then as always the show's organisers and participants have their work cut out protecting delicate blooms as they hope for kind weather.
According to RHS, the Grand Pavilion in 2013 displayed a variety of flowers old and new; look out for "our display of 100 years in pictures, a spell-binding look at how Chelsea style has evolved through the decades" they advertised.
But each year competing teams and gardens work hard to create temporary magical gardens which are everything from the sublime to the ridiculous.
RHS offered these key facts about the show previously;
The show is interesting to visit whether you are a keen gardener or not. The displays offer inspiration, are a beautiful sight for world-weary eyes and give a nod to the environment. You can also pick up helpful tips and advice to take back home.
