Since opening its doors in early 2018, York Mansion House has hosted a range of events from parlour games to product launches, black tie dinners to immersive theatrical feasts. In 2019 we will pack our schedule with even more delights; our Chinese New Year celebrations, intimate live concerts, fashion shows and screenings.

Saturday 26th January

We will be reopening for this year's York Residents Festival.

Organised by Make It York and sponsored by Grand Central, the York Residents Festival is your chance to explore the city and be a tourist for the weekend – for free! Now in its 24th year, this annual festival is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for the warm welcome you give to York’s visitors.

York Residents Festival is open to all York Residents and York students who have a valid YorkCard or student ID – you’ll need one card per person for free entry to the house.

We will be open for our normal hours of 1030-1700 on both Saturday and Sunday, there is no prebooking but we do recommend arriving early as we expect to be busy!

Saturday 2nd February

York Mansion House and Visit York invite you to celebrate Chinese New Year!

Join us for an array of workshops delivered by the Business Confucius Institute at the University of Leeds and local artist Danny Ha to kick off the Year of the Pig in style.

All workshops included with price of admission, sign up online at chinesenewyear2019.eventbrite.com or on the day at admissions.

Also on Saturday 2nd February, you can discover 50 frozen creations across the city of York, made from crystal-clear ice depicting myths and legends.
