About Yorkshire

The wide River Humber forms the southern boundary of East Yorkshire and separates Yorkshire from Lincolnshire. It is the most obvious dividing line between the North of England and the Midlands. Humber is a Celtic river name meaning 'good- well' and the root of the name can be traced back to the Sanskrit 'Ambhas' meaning water. The antiquity of the name demonstrates the river's importance. The Humber gave its name to the ancient kingdom of Northumbria - the land north of the Humber and it forms one of the largest river estuaries in England, matched only by the River Severn and the River Thames.

Yorkshire is a huge county, and in our 'select county' drop down box we differentiate between North Yorkshire and South Yorkshire. Many of our Party Bands, Function Bands and Cover Bands will travel significant distances [this can be reflected in the price they charge], whereas many Classical Ensembles and Folk Bands only perform in a relatively localised area. So it is important to select your part of this large county when looking at music groups
