Due to the current situation with regards to the pandemic our diary is subject to change with short notice. The Barn remains open every day so if you have any enquiries please feel free to call in or call. 

Hello and welcome to Tadcaster Events. The aim of this website is to share all the exciting things happening in and around the town of Tadcaster. 

Tadcaster is a small market town in the Selby District of North Yorkshire. Home to 3 breweries and probably most famous for Sam Smiths Old Brewery, the oldest brewery in Yorkshire. 

Tadcaster Events was set up following the collapse of the towns bridge in 2015 with the vision to bring together the town and help support the businesses and groups that live and work here. Since then we have hosted a number of events including the Lantern Parade, Tadcaster Heritage Day, Arts Festival and much more.

Tadcaster Events are based at The Barn on the corner of St Joseph's street and Leeds road. The Barn has been a central point for the town for many years hosting baby groups and youth clubs since the 1980's. Last year the Barn was taken over by Tadcaster and Rural CIC who have since worked hard to re-brand the building and invite more groups and clubs to use the building as their home. The Barn is now host to regular Tadcrafters meetings, the town Twinning group, The Bridge project and a number of youth clubs runs by various groups.

This June sees the first birthday of The Barn and to celebrate this, we invite all down on Saturday 6th June to see all we have to offer. All of the clubs and groups will be represented on the day and there will be plenty to do and see. Keep checking back here for more details. In the meantime check out our events calendar here​.


The Barn is now up and running with a whole host of clubs and groups now active in the building, for a full list of whats on, see here

Tempt is made up of a group of individuals, all of whom live or work in Tadcaster. Every member of TEMPT has worked on or had experience in the variety of events hosted in Tadcaster, each bring with them their own set of skills and experience to make sure that we produce the best possible events we can. 

In 2018 Tempt were announced runners up at the North Yorkshire Councils Community Awards ceremony.

The awards are an annual event recognising the work done by volunteers and groups in the county, helping make a difference in their community. 
David, Kirsty and Steve from the Tempt team attended the awards and were honoured to receive the nomination. "Tempt was only formed a short time ago following the collapse of the bridge, so to already be nominated for this award feels like a huge achievement for all of us on the team" said Kirsty following the event.
