Other Ideas

There's always plenty to do in Yorkshire, and this is most definitely the case on Yorkshire Day. We'd like to encourage everyone to get out and explore the amazing things that Yorkshire has to offer.

Delicious Trails

AleOne of the best ways to experience what Yorkshire has to offer is by trying one of our Delicious Trails. The Ale, Fish & Chip and Tea Trails have all been refreshed and updated and this year we have a new and exciting trail - the Dairy to Deli Trail. Here's a brief description of each trail.

  • Tea Trail - Our trail features everything from information on our wonderful producers and tea companies to places in perfect surroundings where you can enjoy a good brew. While we couldn't fit in every place to enjoy a good cuppa, these examples highlight some of the ones definitely worth a visit. So enjoy exploring and we truly hope our trail will be everyone's cup of tea!
  • Ale Trail - Whether you venture far from home or just pop along to your local, you can be sure of a warm welcome in any of Yorkshire's pubs. Our Delicious Ale Trail allows you to find your way to the excellent ales around the county so wherever you are or whatever you are doing, get ready to enjoy a proper pint or two - a real taste to savour.
  • Fish & Chip Trail - Fish and chips are one of our Great British institutions, whether eaten straight from the paper or from a plate, with mushy peas or a nice glass of wine, you can't beat a good portion of Yorkshire fish and chips. We believe there are some of the finest fish and chip restaurants and take-aways in the world right here in Yorkshire and while we couldn't fit them all in, we wanted to give visitors a taste of some of the best places for great fish and chips.
  • Dairy to Deli Trail -Yorkshire is famed for providing the finest local produce, sought after by food lovers throughout the UK and overseas. We've got everything, from Farm shops to dairy producers and markets to specialist delis offering a multitude of delights, including: mature grass-fed beef, Dales lamb, famous Yorkshire cheeses, chutneys, baked goods, luxury ice creams, chocolates and beer. Yorkshire's food producers have a real passion for flavour that has turned the county in to a culinary hothouse!

Yorkshire Anthem

A twist on the Yorkshire classic!

single_coverIn 2013, a star-studded version of On Ilkla Moor Baht ‘At featuring a rap by a film star was released on Yorkshire Day (August 1), to showcase the county worldwide.

The track is Yorkshire's own national anthem and has been reworked to breathe life into the piece of cultural heritage.

It followed an initial campaign by music teacher and musical director, Gordon Eddison from Otley, to raise awareness of the anthem after it was suggested only 10 per cent of young people in the UK's biggest county were even aware of the song.

This version features a collection of Yorkshire stars; it includes a rap by film and stage actor Brian Blessed, vocals by soprano Lesley Garrett and singer/songwriter Alistair Griffin, music from the Grimethorpe Colliery Band and vocals from the Yorkshire choir Rock Up and Sing.

X Factor singer and Yorkshire Regiment soldier Jonjo Kerr also features on the track and profits will go to the Heroes Children Fund charity (of which Jonjo is a patron), the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Yorkshire Regiment's charity.

It has been produced by Artistic Producer on The X-Factor, Eliot Kennedy. The Sheffield-based songwriter has written and recorded with some of the world's biggest acts including Take That and the Spice Girls.

The track is available to download on on iTunes and a video is available to watch on YouTube.

If you like this charity single, please help to spread the Yorkshire love and share it on Twitter and Facebook.

Happy Yorkshire Day!!
