Selby Stories

Coming soon – an exciting and innovative programme of arts and cultural events celebrating what makes Selby unique. 
This unique programme, funded by Historic England and Selby District Council, will run through to 2023 and includes artist residencies, singing, songwriting, projection, performance, and music – in some familiar places but also unexpected, new, and different spaces. 
It starts in late September with an artist in residence based at Selby Abbey who will use tales from the past and present to inspire artworks, installations, and exhibitions. You’ll be encouraged to see the Abbey in new ways both inside and out. Stories and recollections will be gathered from residents of all ages exploring what makes Selby so important to you.
