About

We are a not for profit organisation run by volunteers. Our mission is to promote and expand York’s music and culture community.


If you ask me what York Calling is about, I’d start by telling you what it’s not about. It’s not about forming a clique. It’s not about judging whose music or performance or whatever is good or bad. It’s about celebrating the creative place that is York. It’s about giving the creative people in York a ‘virtual community’ to form around, to tell us what they’re doing and find out what others are up to.
