What’s On in York in June?  Whether you are visiting the city or, like me, you live here it’s always good to have a list of what’s on so you can plan your month ahead!  As always, things are subject to change, so do check with the individual venue to make sure of the most up to date details.  Links to venues can be seen below highlighted in red.  If there is an event I haven’t mentioned then be sure to let me know via email.


Sounds in the Grounds

York Racecourse 25th to 27th June 2021 
Sounds in the Grounds brings a line-up of best-loved and internationally renowned bands to the iconic setting of York Racecourse in the newly renovated Clocktower Enclosure.
The concerts will be staged on the grassed infield area parallel to the final furlong of the track, beneath the 99 year-old listed Clocktower, with the spectacular back-drop of the Grandstands and unrivalled 360° views of the green and leafy expanse of the historic Knavesmire.
Audiences can enjoy great live music from their designated ‘picnic patch’ (for 2, 4 or 6 people), which will be socially distanced from others but close enough to share the fun.
In fully-staged productions with LED screens beside the stage.

Here Come the Boys

Following 2019’s sold-out show, we return this year with a bigger and bolder cast starring our very own “kings of dance”.

Here Come the Boys returns with three Strictly dance superstars, a brand-new cast and a brand-new dazzling production.

Aljaž Škorjanec returns again and is joined by his former Strictly star Pasha Kovalev. They are joined by Sicilian sensation and Strictly star Graziano di Prima.

Joining our three handsome leads will be a cast of dancers including three internationally acclaimed female partners, a world champion beatboxer and a team of commercial street dancers.  It will be one of the most talked-about dance shows of 2021.

This cast has dance credentials oozing from every pore. And lovers of dance will enjoy a show featuring some of the world’s greatest dancers, a huge LED screen and a lavish production.
