THE focus of this year’s Yorkshire Day festivities will be in Skipton as the market town gives itself over to a whole programme of events. The four day long festival will see the canal-side transformed into a seaside resort, while the performance of A Night at the Opera will features more than 300 internationally acclaimed singers and musicians. Add in stalls, live music and entertainment and it should be an event to remember.
