Doncaster RLFC v Bradford Bulls

Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster

May

Tour de Yorkshire
Thursday, May 3, 2018 - Sunday, May 6, 2018

Eight start and finish locations will be the site of some high-octane cycling from some of the world’s finest riders, but you can see the peloton zooming by across any of the routes that zig-zag across the county.

Locations across Yorkshire

Carter Jonas Pedalthon
Friday, May 11, 2018

The annual cycling event for the property community returns to the historic market town of Masham – with 40, 60 and 80 mile route options through glorious countryside and an after-ride village filled with local produce – all in support of homelessness charity Land Aid.

Theakston Brewery, Masham
RSPB Puffin and Gannet Cruises
Saturday, May 12, 2018 - Sunday, July 8, 2018

All aboard the Yorkshire Belle! Set sail for Bempton’s towering cliffs and keep your eyes peeled for nesting puffins, gannets and other seabirds – as well as seals and porpoise, which could pop up through the waves at any time.

Bempton Cliffs Nature Reserve, Bridlington
Huddersfield AFC v Arsenal
Sunday, May 13, 2018

Arsenal have been on a downswing lately, meaning Huddersfield – though languishing down near the bottom of the table – could potentially eke out an important win at home here on the last day of the season. It may mean the difference between safety and relegation.

John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield
Helicopter Flight and Afternoon Tea
Sunday, May 20, 2018 - Sunday, July 15, 2018

Soar through the skies in a luxury helicopter ride over the Yorkshire Dales – taking in sights such as Bolton Abbey, Burnsall and Grassington – before getting your feet back on the ground (though your head may stay up in the clouds) with a decadent Champagne afternoon tea.

The Devonshire Arms, Skipton
Flower Festival
Friday, May 25, 2018 - Monday, May 28, 2018

It may be the city’s larger festival – Bloom! – in July, but Holy Trinity Micklegate’s Maytime offering really is the flower of the flock. They’re packing their pews with petal arrangements themed around a ‘monastery garden’, alongside daily musical concerts.

Holy Trinity Micklegate, York

June

England v Pakistan
Friday, June 1, 2018 - Tuesday, June 5, 2018

The second test match between England and Pakistan stretches out over four days in June at Headingley, and cricket fans are in for a treat. Sarfaz Ahmed’s men are no slouches out on the crease, and will put up tough opposition to England.

Headingley, Leeds
Italian Cars and Bikes Rally
Sunday, June 3, 2018

Now in it’s third year, this popular rally is cruising back to Newby Hall for a spectacular display of Italian-designed cars and motorbikes. With Maserati, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Fiat and Ducati all in the offing, it’s a must-see for any engine enthusiast and promises to keep the kids entertained, too.

100 Years Of RAF Air Power
Sunday, June 3, 2018

In honour of the centenary of the Royal Air Force this year, the Yorkshire Air Museum have created a showcase of the timeline of their historic aircraft – spanning the entire history of British military aviation and showing the incredible progression of aviation technology over just 100 years.

Doncaster RLFC v Keighley Cougars
Sunday, June 10, 2018

Each side has won four games apiece in their last eight meetings and there’s not many points separating them in the table so far this season. It’s sure to be a tight, hard-fought game at the Keepmoat Stadium – but will the Dons still be top of the table afterwards?

Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster
