A multimedia event in the city centre awaiting refurb, The Mansion House has been taken over for the afternoon by the Vespertine arts organisation for this afternoon extravaganza.   Five tours of the building between 4pm and 7pm, each ending with a short set by Juxtavoices!


Masks will be provided. Appearances may be deceiving.

Vespertine cordially invites the people of York and beyond, to a guided tour of the Mansion House with a twist! This event will be a rare opportunity to see the Mansion House as it is awaiting renovation; the unfurnished, raw building will provide the perfect backdrop for performances and music. Contributions include photographs by fine artist Rhianna Mayhew, performances by Sheffields 30 piece ‘anti-choir’ Juxtavoices and two piece multi-instrumental band McWatt as well as a Mansion House inspired sound installation by Howlround.

This event is free and is part of York Food and Drink festival’s programme.
