We can now announce that NYR 2020 will be the first weekend of June. Put it in your diary!

We’ll open for bookings in mid-January once we’ve finalised the prices and have a bit more detail to the programme for the weekend (but don’t worry, it will follow a similar pattern to recent years). But in the meantime, I know that some of you are keen to get your accommodation sorted. So here’s what’s happening.

We have got a good deal from the Park Inn, which is £108pn for a twin or double room, including breakfast. The hotel is very convenient for the railway station, and is where we will be meeting for the Saturday walks and holding the Saturday evening entertainment, so it will be a really convenient place to stay, and we’ll include details of how to get our discount rate when we open for booking.

If you would prefer somewhere cheaper (or somewhere more upmarket!) then you are very welcome to arrange your own accommodation. There is a Travelodge (Micklegate), Premier Inn (Blossom Street) and Safestay Hostel that are centrally located and close to the station. If you are booking into the Travelodge or Premier Inn, note that they each have several hotels in York, so make sure you book the right one or you could have a bit of a trek in and out of town. There’s also a YHA but again it’s about a mile out of town.

We look forward to welcoming you to York!
