Event details

We invite our audiences to experience new work across a spectrum of performing arts in the heart of the University of York - from theatre, to spoken word to new writing and live music.

Venutre Fest will transform the university into an unrecognisable, independent space. Showcasing our community's most exciting emerging artists, through bold and unexpected performance.

This is the inaugural launch of one of the most dedicated and supportive new artist festival in the North, reflecting the contemporary importance and cultural vibrancy that York has to offer.
