Selby 950 is a celebration of the 950th anniversary of the Abbey's foundation and the central role it plays in the town.
This year sees a broad programme of activities to celebrate the building and the town's heritage. This included a stage finish for Selby in the Tour de Yorkshire.
A variety of community events have taken place, including a bell peel, living history day, fun days, bands in the park, pop up opera, drama, singing festivals, exhibitions and much more.
Highlights included a carnival style parade on 31 July to mark the Feast Day of the Abbey's patron saint with music and movement, art and crafts on display to welcome the newly commissioned icon of St Germain.
Community collaboration is the essence of Selby 950 with churches, the Town Council, schools, colleges, the library, the Civic Society and local businesses involved.
