The Black Swan Inn, Peasholme Green, York

It will showcase six hours of incredible live music performed in the intimate setting of the Black Swan on Saturday.
Having received 103 applications from female talent from across the North of England all keen to play at the event, festival organisers spent three weeks whittling the numbers down to six acts.
Fest curator Ellen Cole said:
Our event is running alongside the York International Women’s Festival, which we’re incredibly proud to be a part of.
