Boasting a diverse and vibrant programme of arts and cultural activity, the 100 day festival will kick off a countdown to the Yorkshire Grand Depart from Thursday 27 March running through to Sunday 6 July, when the world’s largest annual sporting event is set to descend on the county. It marks the first ever cultural festival to be held during the build up to the Tour De France in the race’s 111th year history.
While actvity is set to take place across the whole of Yorkshire, here in Sheffield several of the city's leading cultural organisations, venues, artists and creative coordinators were amongst the successful applicants announced as main commissions for the official activity.
The main Yorkshire Festival events taking place in Sheffield are listed below with even more fringe events still yet to be announced, but for the full programme of events across Yorkshire be sure to visit www.festival.yorkshire.com
There are lots of opportunities for communities and groups to get involved - funding may be available to help with your plans.
