January 2nd

On 2nd January 1645, Sir John Hotham was executed for treason. He was buried, with his son John, in the Church of All Hallows, Barking. His lands passed to his grandson, aged about 10.

On 2nd January 2007, Historic England listed the former National Picture Theatre on Beverley Road, Hull, Grade II for its special architectural or historic interest. It is believed to be the only civilian WW2 bombed–out building, other than churches, remaining on its site.
