Issued by City of York Council

With York 800 drawing to a close this month, City of York Council will be presenting a film that looks back on what has been a spectacular year for the City of York. York 800 has been a great year of momentous events and wide community participation with the Olympics thrown in for good measure.

Cllr Sonja Crisp, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “The York 800 film will be shown from 29-31 December on a big, mobile screen that will be touring round the city to give everyone in York a chance to re-live the events of the year and be reminded of the fantastic celebrations we have all been involved in.

“It will cover all the highlights of the year, including HM the Queen’s Jubilee visit, the York City return from Wembley, Buskival, the Olympic and Paralympic flames’ journeys through the city, the Mystery Plays and the events of Charter Weekend including Ebor Vox.”

In a mixed programme of films we will also be screening the introduction to York 800 film and the film of the Ebor Vox project where over 800 people came together to sing the specially composed anthem This York. The film shows can be seen at:
