Pitch your project!

Do you have a killer event or project you would like to present for the 2019 York Festival?  

The York Festival is inviting submissions from anyone or any organisation interested in putting forward their pet project for possible inclusion in the Festival’s 2019 program. 

These can be free or ticketed events and ideas to be considered could include but are not limited to: exhibitions, shows, displays, demonstrations or performances. 

If necessary, we can help you find the right location but those submitting a proposal will be entirely responsible for all matters related to staging the event, including all costs.  A programming fee will be payable and amount payable will depend on the organisation or individual holding the event, whether the event is ticketed, duration etc.

All you need to do is provide a synopsis of up to 50 words, website URL, social media pages, name of organisation and a graphic that represents the project.  Email your proposal to Festival Director at

Deadline for submissions 1/8/19. We look forward to hearing your proposals!
