It’s been an action packed year in Yorkshire, how much of it can you remember?

We’ve certainly had a busy 2017 at Yorkshire Life and we know you have had an eventful year too. The year has been filled with major celebrations, anniversaries and landmarks and it has been huge fun to document what everyone has been doing in our wonderful county. If you’ve been regular visitor to our website, then this quiz shouldn’t pose any problems for you.

The year got off to a lively start when the TV programme ‘Our Dancing Town’ visited Barnsley, Skipton and Huddersfield in a bid to get the locals dancing. The show proved a hit on social media and was a celebration of the diversity in modern day Yorkshire.

On our website, readers shared their photos of snowdrops, bluebells and daffodils from across the county in our reader photo gallery, we look forward to seeing more of those in 2018.

Spring also saw the relaunch of the JORVIK Viking Centre after over a year of extensive renovations, costing millions of pounds.

The summer was filled with festivals and concerts, and of course we celebrated Yorkshire Day on August 1st. and the return of an old friend in Halifax.

Hull celebrated its status as the UK City of Culture throughout the year with a series of awe-inspiring events including a mass street art installation called ‘The Sea of Hull’, the Blade in Queen Victoria Square and the Weeping Poppies at the Hull Maritime Museum.

Autumn was award season for us, in September we hosted our annual Food and Drink Awards at Rudding Park and we also announced the winner of our Woodland Photography competition in partnership with Bettys and the National Trust; Harry Feather won top prize with his shot of Silsden.

In the tail end of the year we helped you celebrate festive fun across the county. We took a look at the ever popular Grassington Dickesian Festival and we explored why York has become one of the top destinations for Christmas in the country.

Our website was viewed over a million times in 2017 and we look forward to seeing even more of you pay us a visit in 2018.

Have a great new year.

The Tour de Yorkshire is back and bigger than ever. ‘Tour fever’ is at an all-time high, with a new stage and an extra day added for 2018. This Yorkshire-based race is the result of the success of 2014’s Tour de France (the first two stages were nicknamed Le Tour de Yorkshire), and we have embraced this local version with as much gusto as its French predecessor.
