Welcome to the events section of Essence of Yorkshire. This section provides information on forthcoming events throughout Yorkshire.


We try our best to be as inclusive as possible, and therefore, list as many events as we can. Below is a list of just some of the types of events that we include in our calendar.


  • Summer Festivals

  • Game & Country Fairs

  • Agricultural Shows

  • Food & Drink Exhibitions and Shows

  • Horse Shows

  • Sports Events

  • Small Village Galas

  • Markets

  • Large Regional Shows

  • Music Events


By doing this we hope to provide our readers with a comprehensive and diverse calendar of events, a calendar that we feel not only represents but also showcases Yorkshire tradition, culture and community spirit at its best.


We have integrated several useful features to our events calendar to improve the user experience. Users can now export not only individual events, but also the events list for an entire week, month or year, directly to their own Google Calendar or iCalendar. Events can also be easily shared on many popular social media networks.


Another great feature we have added allows users to upload their own events which they are organising, we feel this will allow the organisers of smaller events to promote and share their events to a wider audience.


Take a look at our 2016 Events Calendar to see what is on in Yorkshire this year.

If you are organising an event in Yorkshire, however large or small, and would like us to help promote your event, and to include in our list please contact us at:
