The York Early Music Christmas Festival was created in 1997 to introduce audiences to the extraordinary wealth of music associated with Advent, Christmas and Epiphany, from the Medieval to the Baroque, intertwined with the sagas, stories and tales of the north.   

In 2020 the Christmas festival was shared with a small socially distanced, York based, audience and internationally online with guests joining us from as far afield as Australia and Canada.  The Festival was certainly different to the previous year, but very much enjoyed by audiences and artists alike.

We hope that we’ll be able to welcome capacity audiences back to our venue very soon  – but please be assured that we’ll continue to share our very special Christmas/winter festivities online into the future: so where ever you are, we’ll be looking forward to welcoming you to the NCEM Christmas 2021.
