The York Early Music Christmas Festival was created in 1997 to introduce audiences to the extraordinary wealth of music associated with Advent, Christmas and Epiphany, from the Medieval to the Baroque, intertwined with the sagas, stories and tales of the north.  

The 2024 Festival will run from Friday 6th – Saturday 14th December with guest artists including Spiritato, Solomon’s Knot, Stile Antico, Ensemble Augelletti, Contre le temps and guitarist Sean Shibe.
