Organising events

View along York Cemetery path - with cat

Throughout the year, York Cemetery welcomes visitors to a wide variety of on-site events.

Cemetery chapel - available to hire for events

Some of these, for example nature and historical tours and our annual carol concert, are organised by the Cemetery and open to the general public.

Others are organised by private individuals and groups for public enrichment and enjoyment (eg lectures, concerts, exhibitions), and some are private functions (eg parties, receptions).

If you seek a unique atmosphere for your event with easy access to York city centre and ample parking, speak to us about hiring York Cemetery and the Chapel.
