Festivals in Beverley

Folk, puppet, gin, Christmas – Beverley has a festival for everything!

There has been a folk festival in Beverley every year since 1983, hosting countless legendary performances by hundreds of artists. Each year, over three days, venues across the town are filled with the sounds of both traditional and contemporary folk music.

Taking place every two years, the award-winning Beverley Puppet Festival sees giant fantastical creatures roam Beverley’s cobbled streets delighting children and adults alike. Definitely not one to be missed!

Taking place in Beverley’s iconic Minster, the annual Beverley Gin Festival showcases botanical and dry gins, as well as delicious street food and live music. Cheers to that!

And rounding off the year is the Made in East Yorkshire Christmas Market and the Beverley Festival of Christmas. See the town transformed into a magical Christmas wonderland and discover over 120 stalls brimming with gorgeous gifts. Festive feels guaranteed.

From stage to screen

East Riding Theatre delivers an eclectic programme of performances from a converted Baptist chapel in Beverley’s town centre. A fantastic line up of music, drama and comedy are all on the bill.

For film lovers, Parkway Cinema in Beverley’s Flemingate brings you all the recent releases as well as opera, ballet and theatre from around the world.
