Spark:York is a response to a very specific problem that local people face. We are about achieving accessible and affordable space for start-ups, independent businesses and social enterprises.


Creating an affordable space in York, irrespective of financial means, to enjoy a vibrant social hub of which arts, events, culture and the best showcase of local businesses are attainable for all.


York is full of talented and visionary people. We are tired of our friends and colleagues leaving a city they love because they don’t feel the city speaks to their dreams and ambitions. We are hoping to change that.
