Welcome to the Ryedale Festival 

 

Chris photo 2014 wEvery year, the Ryedale Festival welcomes outstanding performers from all over the world, both established and emerging, to perform a wide-ranging and distinctive programme in the many spectacular and historic venues of Ryedale, North Yorkshire – an area full of history and natural beauty. 

The festival enjoys a large, loyal and enthusiastic audience, the warm support of the local community and a growing reputation as one of the most exciting and enterprising in the country. Events range far and wide across the area and performances are given at the great houses of Castle Howard, Hovingham, Duncombe Park and Sledmere, as well as in Ampleforth Abbey, York Minster, Helmsley Arts Centre, Pickering Kirk Theatre and many other local venues. There is also a popular series of Coffee Concerts given in the many beautiful, often remote, country churches of North Yorkshire and a series of literary events, talks, exhibitions, theatre, jazz and family events.
 
Join us to discover the festival’s unique magic
