Shoot The Bull in dramatic partnership

Hull Truck Theatre is thrilled to announce its new partnership with Shoot The Bull, Hull’s homegrown leading catering providers. This is an exciting moment for Hull Truck Theatre, following a Year of Exceptional Drama as a lead partner in Hull UK City of Culture 2017. Hull Truck Theatre and Shoot The Bull have teamed up for an ambitious journey inspired by their joint commitment to being welcoming and accessible to all.

This collaboration between two award-winning local businesses will provide both theatre audiences and the general public with a whole new range of high quality dining opportunities. Specialising in restaurant style street food, Shoot The Bull will be providing diners with both a daytime and evening food and beverage offer. The new menu will be arriving at Hull Truck Theatre from 1 August, with a lunchtime offer available throughout the month. A full menu launch is planned for the beginning of September to coincide with the start of the theatre's autumn season of shows.

Ruth Puckering, Hull Truck Theatre Interim Executive Director, said: “Having Shoot The Bull join us at Hull Truck Theatre to provide the catering provision is a real coup! We're excited to be working with the team who share the same high-quality values as us and have a real focus on exceptional customer service. The synergies of our two brands make them a perfect fit and we're looking forward to seeing how the new menu is received by our audiences and members of the public alike.”

Chris Harrison, owner of Shoot The Bull, said: “We are super-excited to be joining forces with one of our favourite venues in the city. We are an ambitious company and the collaboration with such like-minded people at Hull Truck Theatre is right up our street. We are excited to bring a new style of dining to the theatre for pre and post theatre meals along with an offering in the week too. A great range of drinks will be on offer too and we will continue to stick to our company ethos of supporting other local suppliers. This collaboration will make for an extra special trip when visiting the theatre.”
