We know that for sure, because now that you have us in your pocket, you'll enjoy the best possible August in York that any human ever could. Why? Well, because August is a very special time of year. Sure, the kids are off school and you might have booked a holiday for yourself, but there is something quite delightful

about August and York is best place to be during it. We do August better than any other city, and if you hear different, they must be lying. You hear that, Edinburgh? Shuddup!

time in our great city is wasted.

With a copy of What's On about your person, you'll possess a power few others do: the power to KNOW WHAT'S ON. If you wander our gorgeous streets and alleys you might notice others like you, but confused, frustrated, and bemused. These are the unfortunates who do not KNOW WHAT'S ON, and their

But, flip through these pages, and you'll find all the info you need to make the most of the month, from theatre shows, outdoor concerts, exhibitions, gigs, and deets about York's best attractions. Plan your time with us, fit in as much as you can, and, when you're done, pass on this copy to one of those dozy-eyed nincompoops, will you?

Have an awesome August!

A fresh new you

If the hot weather is stressing you out, and if the kids are getting under your feet this school holiday, why not make some time for yourself to unwind and relax? If so, we know just the person to talk to.

Pavan Kaur Hunjan qualified as a Complementary Therapist in 2012, and has since ran successful practices at Harley Street in London, and at Neal's Yard Remedies in Windsor. Now working across York and Leeds, Pavan uses a variety of approaches to help her clients, including clinical aromatherapy, acupressure, reflexology and shiatsu extensively.

Letting go Pavan discovered that people tend to hold onto negative experiences which then manifest as ailments in the body. As a result she recently qualified as a NLP Practitioner, which focuses linguistically on transforming negative experiences to positive pragmatic solutions. Her experience involves working with an array of conditions from stress, pain, and palliative care, and Pavan is known for her calmness, her conscience, and empathetic approach. Her goal as a therapist is 6

to help people become pain free, be positive, and encourage a lifestyle of well-being.

Face facts One area in which Pavan excels in is Facial Reflexology, a procedure often described as being highly relaxing and detoxifying. Areas of the face are worked on and decongested using reflexology and acupressure techniques, balancing corresponding organs and structures in the body. The method simultaneously produces a natural botox effect by relaxing facial muscles and tones the skin leaving you with a natural healthy glow. Some people call it a mini face lift! To talk to Pavan about any of her services, call 07908 699124 or email pavankmatharu7@gmail.com

ROBIN HOOD: THE ARROW OF DSTINY (4TH AUGUST-2ND SEPTEMBER) It's all very well stealing from the rich to give to the poor, but when you have no sense of direction then mayhem ensues! Robin Hood is lost in Sherwood Forest. It's not his fault; there are a lot of trees. But once again it falls to Maid Marian to save the day and get him and the Merry Men out of a scrape. They may wear the tights, but Marian knows what really makes a hero. A summer swashbuckling show for all the family as the team of actor puppeteers re-tell this classic story of heroism, valour, and the power of legendary teamwork with songs, slapstick and spectacle.
