About Us

The Great Yorkshire Fringe has wowed York with four years of festivals on Parliament Street, and for 2018 took comedy, variety and family entertainment to even more locations in the heart of the city.

Our fifth year's festival will return from 18th-28th July 2019.

Our mission...

The Great Yorkshire fringe will become a key summer event in York’s entertainment calendar, bringing the best in comedy, cabaret, theatre and music to Yorkshire. Building on the success of the previous festivals, The Great Yorkshire Fringe will grow with the city of York, engaging residents and visitors, supporting local businesses and encouraging tourism for the wider area.
