York venue of the year: The Crescent, in The Crescent:
"ONCE a working men's club, now a hub for music and comedy that grows apace. Honourable mentions for Fibbers, Black Swan, National Centre for Early Music and The Basement at City Screen, no less vital in keeping music live and vibrant. The Howl And The Hum's concerts in the dark at assorted locations were a novel innovation too.".
- The York Evening Press 'Hutch Awards' January 2018
York's newest late night live music venue is already attracting attention from gig-goers across the region. Proprietors Bob and Ed Leyland know a thing or two about hospitality...
The Crescent Community Venue has two function rooms - the front bar with DJ decks & its large well-equipped & freshly decorated games room plus a 250-capacity live venue with great sight lines. There are excellent in-house sound systems throughout.
The home of local legends Irie Vibes Sound System and its awesomely good 10k touring rig, Crescent hosts events from known touring acts to regular monthly events and local line dancing classes - a community entertainment centre for all!
In a central location just a couple of minutes' walk from the railway station The Crescent boasts a very broad bar selection and bar snacks at reasonable prices. Their newly-refurbished kitchen is the very latest feather in this excellent new venue's cap.
