York Barbican

The Barbican was built in 1989 as a multi-purpose arts centre for the people of York, but after a chequered early career (including a failed attempt by York Council to sell the place off to a developer) it closed in 2004 and lay empty until a £1.5m refurbishment saw it opening again in 2011. It's now managed on behalf of its owners York Council by the ultra-professional SMG group. It offers a broad range of live performance from concerts, stand-up comedy, rock opera, classical music and, if Bill Bailey happens to be playing, all of the above. Plus the occasional psychic.

York station is a mile to the west and the venue is served by the 4, 7, 18, 26, 27, 37, 42-2, 42, 44, 200 and 415 bus routes.

York Barbican is the largest entertainment venue in the area, attracting major touring concerts, comedy, sporting shows and corporate events. The venue hosts over 200 events and over 130,000 visitors each year.

Ranking in the top 20 Music Club Venues in the UK in 2019 by Pollstar, York Barbican has hosted some of the biggest touring acts in the country, such as Ricky Gervais, Little Mix, Manic Street Preachers and Morrissey.

York Barbican is operated by ASM Global, the world’s leading venue management and services company, connecting people through the power of live experiences.
