Enjoy 100 days of culture at the Yorkshire Festival


Theatre, art exhibitions, musical performances and a bit of biking; the 100-day marathon that is the Yorkshire Festival has it all.

Yorkshire really is pulling out the stops this summer. As well as the Tour de France, the county is hosting its own 100-day festival to celebrate all that is great and good about local creativity.

As you’d expect, there are plenty of events with a biking theme, including Cassandra Kilbride’s Woolly Bike Trail, which sees colourful cycles made from local yarn touring the region, a theatre performance of urban and rural rides and the Sheffield Steel Peloton, where you can make a bike out of the city’s most famous export before being involved in a film about it.

It’s not just about peddle power though; don’t miss taking in some of the art exhibitions by the likes of David Hockney, sculptor Bruce McLean, American artist Ursula Von Rydingsvard and the National Portrait Gallery. All sound like music to your ears? Well, there’s a bit of that too with an African drumming workshop, jazz nights and even a charity music event set on a farm.
