Turns out quite a lot!
We’ve got renowned comedians such as Milton Jones and Omid Djalili performing and world-class actor Ralph Fiennes is making a stop at York Theatre Royal.
There’s live music from Rick Astley and McFly at York Racecourse, and family-friendly music festival Meadowfest returns to Malton.
