Upcoming deadline for events submission

The deadline for submissions to our programme of events for York LGBT History Month 2015 is now less than two weeks away (Friday 19 December)! Don’t worry, you don’t need to have every single detail confirmed and prepared, we just need the main details:

  • date(s);
  • start time;
  • end time (optional);
  • venue;
  • organisation(s);
  • title;
  • description (preferably under 100 words or 500 characters, with spaces);
  • tickets (if needed: cost, if any, and how to get them);
  • where to go for more information (for example, an email address or webpage).

You can submit your event using our form or by emailing us the details.

The description can be general if you’re yet to confirm specific details – make sure not to include anything that might not happen! If you’re yet to confirm the date of your event and want to avoid clashing with an event already confirmed, email Andy for a list.


Second open meeting

We’re holding another open meeting at 17:30 on Wednesday 10 December to share details of planned events and the overall campaign. This will be a chance to find inspiration, get advice and meet other people contributing to York LGBT History Month 2015.

The meeting will take place in PH/011 in the Phoenix Centre at York St John University. There’s a Facebook event that you can join. If you are external to the university, see the campus map for details of where to find the building. The ‘How to find us‘ page might also be useful.
