The Great Yorkshire Fringe will take place between the 18th and 28th July 2019 and will see the historic city of York's well known thoroughfare transformed into a vibrant and exciting central festival hub. To celebrate our 5th birthday we will be spreading out across the city into even more cultural venues with our eclectic mix of comedy, music, theatre, cabaret and family friendly fun.
