Get To Know Your Own Heart Residents Engagement Festival

Our Get To Know Your Own Heart Festival is back for its second year!

The Residents’ Engagement Festival presents an opportunity for the 89,000 residents living in Selby District to explore the fabulous things we have to offer, on our very own doorstep.

It’s your chance to explore our district and be a tourist for the weekend!

Organised by Selby District Council’s culture and visitor economy team, this Festival is a chance for us to showcase the varied and quality offer that is available across the whole of our district, with special offers, behind the scenes, one time only experiences and activities taking place over the weekend, across the district.
