The Deep

The Deep

Open since 2002, The Deep operates as an education and conservation charity and in recent years has become an international player in marine conservation. Forging partnerships with key governing bodies, conservation organisations and other reputable zoos and aquariums we are working to make an impact in the protection of our oceans.

It is one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world and is home to 5,000 animals including magnificent sharks and rays. The dramatic building overlooking the Humber estuary was designed by world class architects, Sir Terry Farrell and Partners.

In its first year The Deep welcomed over 850,000 visitors, and was busier than London Zoo that year!

Andre Ward – Wednesday 22nd April 2020

An evening with Andre Ward

Andre Michael Ward (born February 23, 1984) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 2004 to 2017. He retired with an undefeated record and held multiple world titles in two weight classes, including the unified WBA (Super), WBC, Ring magazine, and lineal super middleweight titles between 2009 and 2015.

As an amateur, Ward won a gold medal in the light heavyweight division at the 2004 Olympics and turned professional later that year. He rose to worldwide prominence upon entering the Super Six World Boxing Classic tournament in 2009, where he won the WBA (Super) super middleweight title from Mikkel Kessler in the opening group stage. In 2011, Ward defeated WBC champion Carl Froch in the tournament final to unify the titles, as well as winning the vacant Ring and lineal titles. That same year, Ward was named Fighter of the Year by The Ring and the Boxing Writers’ Association of America. He later won The Ring’s Comeback of the Year award in 2016 following a long period of sporadic in-ring activity between 2012 and 2015

Join us for an evening with Andre Ward and hear Andre speak of his undefeated career in the ring.
