Whether you want to play, watch, listen or perform - there are lots of ways to enjoy culture on campus. You could spark a lifelong passion. Or you could have a once in a lifetime experience, like performing an opera, or taking a comedy sketch to Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
If you'd prefer a less formal, non-audition ensemble, you could join one these groups:
You could also be part of the University Choir which performs every term in venues such as York Minster.
We also have regular live music and occasional club nights on campus including:
Fun fact: Jimmy Hendrix played a gig on campus in 1967! We've named 'Hendrix Hall' after him. If you come to an Open Day you'll probably have a talk in there.
Fun fact: Comedian Harry Enfield is a York graduate!
Express yourself or simply be inspired by the art on offer around campus:
Fun fact: The sculpture out the back of Goodricke College is made from bits of the last steam train in York.
York Student Cinema is a student-run cinema on campus that is open to everyone.
They usually show films at least three times a week during term time and it's the cheapest cinema in York at just £3 per ticket. They won 'Society of the year' at the 2014 YUSU Awards.
Fun fact: The cinema went fully digital in 2014 after a big fundraising campaign.
