Jewel of Yorkshire Yorkshire’s First Festival of Bellydance

News at 29 September 2016...

Welcome to the JoY web site.

The next JoY is our 23rd and will run from Friday 7th October to Sunday 9th October 2016.


The Booking Office is now closed. Thank you for booking in advance.


Tickets for the Friday Student Showcase are available to buy on the door, on the evening, Doors open 6:30pm. Tickets for the Saturday Festival Show are sold out!


Tickets for workshops, where there are still places available, will be on sale at the venue starting on Friday evening and continuing through the weekend. Most workshops on Saturday are sold out, there are more workshops with places available on Sunday.


If you have asked to go on the reserve list for a workshop that has sold out please keep an eye on your emails. If a cancellation happens in the next few days, we will try to get you into the workshop you want, if we can, and will let you know if we have been able to do that.


The café and souk are open (free entry) on Saturday (9:30am to 5:30pm) and Sunday (10:00am to 2:00pm) everyone is welcome to come and shop during those times. It will be open during the shows but for ticket-holders only.


You can still view the page showing what workshop places are available, but please take this only as a rough guide. Places may sell quickly, or a new place may become available due to a cancellation so we cannot guarantee the page will reflect the exact position over the weekend.


If you need to cancel, please get in touch as quickly as you can – email is best as we don’t always see Facebook messages.
