Saturday’s audience will hear a hand-picked selection of local artists performing a mix of pop, folk and country.

A bar will serve drinks for the rest of the evening, with all funds raised helping to look after the wonderful York Museum Gardens.

Tickets cost £25, including a welcome drink, homemade Yorkshire picnic hamper including pies, salads and drips and entertainment from the New York Brass Band.

The Garden Gates will be opened at 6:30pm and people are encouraged to bring their own picnic blankets and chairs to enjoy the surroundings from the portico outside the front of the Yorkshire Museum or the main lawn. The event finishes at 10pm.
