Amy Johnson Arts Trust 

The Amy Johnson Arts Trust is a charity which champions Hull aviation heroine Amy Johnson through creative arts and cultural programmes and aims to ensure that future generations of young people know about her remarkable story. The Trust has its registered office at, and is administered from, the Old Ice Cream Factory.

The Trust is the legacy project of the 2016 Amy Johnson Festival, an ambitious two-month Festival of the Arts & Engineering, re-telling Amy’s story for contemporary audiences and celebrating her life and achievements. This was devised and directed by Rick Welton. You can read more about the Trust’s work at


In May 2020, we created Twenty Days, an online celebration of the 90th anniversary of Amy’s solo flight from England to Australia in the form of a daily diary, blog and podcast – a first-person retelling of the highs, the lows and the unexpected incidents that she experienced en route to making history. You can read and listen to all 20 episodes of Twenty Days here.
