The 290 seater was originally converted from a church hall. It served as Truck’s home between 1983 and 23 April this year, when the company departed for its new £15m premises on Ferensway, shortly before the premiere of creative director John Godber’s Funny Turns.
Development coordinator Daniel Kelly described the auction as “a once in a lifetime opportunity for people to get their hands on some genuine Hull Truck Theatre seats. Spring Street was known throughout the country as a truly unique venue, and this auction offers people the chance to buy a piece of its history.”
In addition to the event, Truck is currently operating several fundraising schemes. As well as Take a Seat, whereby theatregoers are offered the chance to dedicate a seat in the new building’s 440 seat main house, it has re-launched Truck Friends, and plans to re-launch Star. Its total income from all projects since 2004 has been over £350,000.
