A new online events guide ‘Things to do in York’ has today been launched by YorkMix, Make It York and City of York Council, bringing together in one place all the events taking place across the city.
With over 350 events currently listed, the site features an eclectic range of activities – from concerts, exhibitions and theatre to charity fundraisers and community events.
The new events listing guide is part of the ongoing tourism recovery marketing campaign devised by Make It York and City of York Council to promote the diverse range of experiences on offer in York and boost the number of visitors and residents coming into the city to explore. With one of the key focuses of the strategy being to engage with residents, the partnership with YorkMix to develop a new online listings guide aims to give local people a clear and simple way to find out what is going on in the city.

Cllr Darryl Smalley, Executive Member for Communities, Culture and Leisure said: “York’s cultural offer, whether music, theatre, art or everything in between is second to none. We are blessed with some of the most outstanding, diverse and exceptional performers in the country. The launch of York Mix’s Things to Do guide provides residents with an easy way of quickly finding something taking place near them. By getting involved in local cultural events, we strengthen our community, support our local economy, make new friends and importantly, have fun – which is so important for our mental well-being. I would encourage all residents to bookmark the site and find out about the vast range of experiences and events that are available.”
Sean Bullick, Managing Director of Make It York said: “Across York there are so many brilliant and unique events going on every week. The new site offers a one-stop shop where residents can find out about everything from bands to new exhibitions or the latest foodie experiences in the city. It’s great too as a promotional tool for business as we all work together to get York’s economy up and running again.”
Chris Titley, Editor of YorkMix said: “York truly punches above its weight when it comes to culture and entertainment. We’ve been covering the city’s arts scene for nine years – and the talent, diversity and innovation of our creative community is a key reason why York is so special.
“We’re delighted to be teaming up with City of York Council and Make It York to launch Things To Do In York, a bigger, brighter and easy to use guide which puts York’s entire culture and entertainment world in your pocket.
“We hope this will enable people to discover more of the fantastic cultural events happening in the city – and help this crucial sector, hit so hard by the crisis, to recover by re-engaging with existing audiences and finding new ones.”
