The Big Screen in Hull is now switched off.

The Big Screen project was run in partnership by the City Council, Philips and the BBC as content provider.

Hull City Council took the decision to switch off the Big Screen on Wednesday 2nd December.

This coincided with the end of the five year contractual agreement between the three partners.

The screen, which was over 10 metres high and boasted a 25 square metre sized digital screen, hosted events and regularly screened local and community content.

It was part of a network of screens across the country including ones in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Birmingham, Rotherham and Bradford.
