Capital of the North
In the medieval kingdoms of Britain, the north was ruled from York. Anglian kings were baptised in its churches, Viking warriors plotted their southern raids and the Normans cruelly stamped their authority on the masses. From the ravages of war the city went on to flourish in a golden age of innovation, religion and trade.

Featuring some of the most prestigious and significant medieval objects ever found in Britain and exploring the lives of some of the most powerful people of the period, this new exhibition will tell the extraordinary story of how great swathes of the country were once ruled from within York's walls.

Chocolate & the People of York
York’s Chocolate Story announces its new exhibition: Chocolate and the People of York which will be opening on Friday 27th May.

At its peak, over 14,000 people were employed in York’s famous chocolate factories. Now, in a brand-new exhibition from York’s Chocolate Story, visitors will be able to hear the voices behind the industry as the people of York tell their own chocolate stories.
: The exhibition highlights include the coveted Rowntree’s Departmental Football Trophy with winners from 1904 to 2005, a century-old ornate fireman’s helmet from the Rowntree’s fire brigade as well as a number of amazing personal items and photography.

Bernie Fleck, who has been coordinating the exhibition says: We wanted to document some of the wonderful stories that our visitors have told us over the years. One of the most enjoyable parts of my job has been to hear about the amazing times that the workers had there. I’ve heard fantastic stories about romance and rivalries and mischief on the production line.

The new exhibition aims to show a unique perspective of a social history which is so important to the city of York and which York’s Chocolate Story is honoured to preserve.

On: 10:00am Fri 27th May 2016

Exhibition: The Weird & The Wonderful
Fairfax House’s major summer exhibition will look at the social scene in English towns and cities including London, delving into the tempting array of decadent activities and pleasurable pursuits catering for all tastes and predilections, sometimes challenging the notions of what ‘polite’ entertainment encompassed in the eighteenth century.

From the pursuit of intimate pleasures to the raucous bedlam of the theatre, The Weird & The Wonderful opens a window onto the outrageous and sometimes shocking behaviour of ‘polite society’ – conducted in the name of entertainment.

Entry is included in admission to Fairfax House:
Adults £6 / Concessions £5 / Children under 16 Free

Human and animal, alive and dead, familiar and strange; this major exhibition will explore how artists represent Flesh in their work.
Paintings by artists including, Peter Paul Rubens, Edgar Degas, Jean-Baptiste Siméon Chardin, Circle of Rembrandt and Francis Bacon will show how the body and flesh have long been subject to intense scrutiny by artists.
