The York Walls Festival is back this weekend, Sat 15th and Sun 16th August 2020.

This third festival is smaller than last year’s, because of the Coronavirus, but will still contain open days at two of the historic towers on the City Walls and a range of online events. Details are listed on our planned events page.
