2023 Summer Bash - Event Information

The LNER Community Stadium will host the 2023 Summer Bash this weekend, with both York Knights and York Valkyrie in action!

York Knights face unbeaten Betfred Championship leaders Featherstone Rovers on Saturday (7.30pm) before York Valkyrie resume their Betfred Women's Super League campaign against Warrington Wolves (11.30am).

Ahead of the Bash arriving in York, RL Commercial have released the following Event Information pack.


The LNER Community Stadium is situated adjacent to the Vangarde Shopping Park which provides a premium shopping experience on the outskirts of York.

The park has become a popular destination for shoppers and diners and offers a wide range of restaurants and shops with outlets including Nando’s, Prezzo, Estabulo Rodizio Bar and Grill, Marks & Spencer, Costa Coffee, Caffè Nero and Next.

In the Stadium, a dedicated Fan Zone will be available by the West Stand with street food, bars, live music and pre-match player interviews.

Drinks bought within the Fan Zone must be consumed there. Likewise, drinks bought from the Stadium concessions will not be able to be taken into the Fan Zone.

The Fan Zone will also have access to a smoking area. Food and beverage concessions will be open throughout the full stadium and alcohol will be allowed to be consumed in stadium seats.

Please only bring along bags at size A4 or smaller and you will not be able to bring excessive amounts of your own food and drink into the ground. Alcohol cannot be brought into the stadium in your matchday baggage.


Your match ticket(s) allows you to watch all games on whichever day(s) you are attending for Bash.

There will be a Pass-Out system in operation so you can leave the stadium at any time and come back into the stadium later in the day.


The Monks Cross area where the LNER Community Stadium is located is served by a number of bus routes, providing regular services from the city centre and surrounding areas.

The most frequent, First York Park and Ride service 9, departs every 10 minutes from York City Centre.

The final bus scheduled is 9.45pm leaving Monks Cross Park and Ride.

We recommend either booking taxis in advance or using the First York bus service instead, as York Races have a meeting on the Saturday of this year’s Bash, and we expect that York city centre and taxi services to be extremely busy that day.


A dedicated area within the Monks Cross Park & Ride site (YO32 9JU) has 400 spaces available for matchday users per day and is located less than 100 metres from the stadium.

CLICK HERE to purchase parking tickets which cost £10 per vehicle.

A steward will then scan your ticket on arrival to the Monks Cross Park & Ride car park.

Accessible parking is also available at this location and in the East Stand car park, but it is extremely limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. To book these spaces please call 01904 942232.

York Knights take on unbeaten Betfred Championship leaders Featherstone Rovers in the Summer Bash at the LNER Community Stadium on Saturday (7.30pm) while York Valkyrie resume their Betfred Women's Super League campaign against Warrington Wolves on Sunday (11.30am). Adult Day tickets begin from £20 and Adult Weekend tickets begin from £35.
