York Proms 2017
Sunday 9 July 2017
Where: Yorkshire Museum Gardens
Rebecca Newman / Daniel Koek / Tre Amici
A rousing picnic concert in the heart of medieval York.

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. After months of groundwork, The York Proms team are excited to announce the date and venue for the first York Proms. The event will take place on the evening of Sunday 9th July in Museum Gardens.

Expect a show filled with some of the greatest, and most popular, classical music ever written. Bring your picnic basket and your flags to help us kick off a brand new event in York in style! Earlybird Tickets are available from www.yorkproms.com
