In this article, we look at some of the things happening around and about in York early in 2018. This promises to be a mammoth year and we don’t need to wait until the summer months for things to start happening.
To start with, the classic Beauty and the Beast story enters it’s final week in early January at the Grand Opera House York. Don’t miss your last opportunity to see this fantastic story brought to the stage.
Also in January, Beningbrough Hall hosts the “Oh wide owl’ art trail. This event hosts an intriguing collection of original sculptures and artwork inspired by the magnificent owls of Britain.
Shrouded in mystery and folklore, the statuesque owl is both revered and feared, polarising beliefs. Inspiring fireside stories of shapeshifters and legend, symbolising protection and wisdom for some cultures, whilst an omen of darkness and witchcraft for others. Throughout the generations the owl’s enduring beauty and prowess has captured the imagination of storytellers and artists alike.
Beningbrough celebrates this nocturnal beauty with an outdoors art trail on open until 25 February 2018.
Heading into February the York Barbican plays host to ballet and sees the classic Swan Lake arrive. Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet is the acclaimed company behind this and now makes its debut at York Barbican. Their performances have an air of magic, complemented by a full orchestra and outstanding soloists who will take your breath away!
Singer songwriters Chas & Dave also come to the Grand Opera House with a range of their classic songs and new material too. Following on from the release of their brand-new album That’s What Happens on Warner Brothers Records which reached the top 20 and their headlining performance at The Royal Variety Show. Appearing on the 12th February your tickets can be secured directly from the box office.
