York is the kind of city that leaves a lasting impression on all her visitors because of the wealth of history, architecture and culture that the locals are lucky enough to live right on top of.
York has a number of festivals each year, which incorporate music, arts, food, comedy and more. However, York didn't have its very own summer proms event, which is a central feature of the entertainment calendar for many other towns and cities. In 2017, a passionate local team launched the first York Proms to a sell out crowd in the York Museum Gardens, overlooked by the one thousand year old ruins of St Mary’s Abbey. Bathed in glorious summer sunshine, 2000 music lovers enjoyed their picnics, waved their flags and sang along to a selection of proms favourites and music from across the classical and musical theatre repertoire.
Following the success of the first year, the York Proms returned in 2018 and is returning next year with an even bigger and better night of music, flag waving, picnics and fireworks! The date is Sunday 14th July and tickets are already selling fast, so get yours now!
