Summer is coming to an end and it’s back to work and school for most of us… but it’s not all doom and gloom!

There’s lots to look forward to this September to help keep those back-to-work/school blues at bay.

You can journey to a big, bright, beautiful world with Shrek the Musical at the Grand Opera House with Shrek, Donkey, Princess Fiona and all of your favourite characters.


Witness the fantastic spectacle of the York Balloon Fiesta at the Knavesmire, with mass launches, tethered displays and more fun attractions that is fun for all the family.

The Beer & Cider Festival is back! From over 500 beers and ciders to choose from there will be something for everyone.

Catch comedy on screen and stage this September with encore showings of the much talked about NT: Live Fleabag and don’t miss the chance to see comedians from both sides of the pond as Frank Skinner and Rob Delaney visit the city.

And Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band are back to bring Ghanian highlife music to your ears.
