York 800 - Join Our York Marina Flotilla
02 May 2012
This year, 2012 is not only an exciting year for the country, It is also a very exciting year for York. The 9th July 2012 marks the 800th anniversary of York becoming a self-governing city. In 1212 King John signed a charter allowing York’s citizens, rather than the sheriff, to collect and pay the annual tax to the Crown, to hold their own courts and to appoint a mayor. York is marking the anniversary with York 800, a year-long programme of events for residents, visitors, and businesses alike.
As part of the festivities York Marina are helping to plan a flotilla of 100's of boats to parade through the centre on Saturday the 7th of July. This will be an incredible spectacle that we want you to be a part of. To take part we need you to register your interest by downloading and filling out the entry form below.
