Beverley Puppet Festival

So much more going on!

With so much going on throughout the year we almost wish there were more than 12 month, especially when it's sunny! With our top, tried and tested annual festivals such as Beverley Folk Festival, Food Festivals, Literature and Christmas Festivals we know a fabulous time is ahead of us. Not forgetting the East Riding Theatre, with its multi functional events and used as part of the filming for the Dad's Army Film. Use the handy search box to see what’s on when you’re visiting us or maybe plan a break around something that sounds like your thing. All this plus 2017 seeing Hull as UK City of Culture (9 mile car journey - 16 minute train journey) – 365 days of events.
