Yorktopia 2026 provided a rare opportunity to see a screening of archive footage of Hungate before its demolition in the 30s, in the futuristic Hiscox building. Immersive projections and soundscapes by York St John students were presented in St Anthony's Hall.
My Future York and artist collective Reet So asked residents and visitors to imagine what a York would look, sound, smell and taste like in 10 years time. The event ended at renowned music venue The Black Swan, with a 'future folk party' compered in surreal style by mouth and music duo Reet Maff'l.
"Discovering things not known about York makes York more interesting and valuable."
