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.
The Great Yorkshire Fringe
The Great Yorkshire Fringe site is located on Parliament Street in York City Centre, YO1 8XS.
York is an ancient city at the heart of North Yorkshire, rich in history, and lucky to have great events and festivals for locals and tourists alike. Known for its cobbled streets, architecture including the magnificent iconic York Minster and range of attractions, York is a vibrant city, just a couple of hours from London.
York is well-serviced by public transport, and getting around this small city once you’re here is easy.
Getting to York
Direct Rail trains run to York from the majority of the UK’s big cities, including Liverpool, Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The East Coast main line that runs between London and Scotland also stops in York, amongst many other destinations.
The train station is a short 5 to 10 minute walk from the City Centre, although buses and taxis will be available from the station.
Bus services in York stretch across Yorkshire, from the coast, Leeds and Hull, and stop in the City Centre, as well as local buses that travel to the outskirts of town, surrounding villages and local shopping centres. Please visit iTravelYork for all local bus times and routes.
There is no car parking at the Parliament Street site or The Central Methodist Church. Many car parks are available nearby and can be found using the iTravelYork website.
Alternatively, York uses a Park & Ride service, found on the outskirts of town, which offers free parking and a short 10 minute bus ride directly into the town centre. Timetables and directions to the Park & Ride can be found on the First Buses website.
