Our Response to Covid-19

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Ryedale Festival at this very difficult time.

Given the risks to public health, and in line with Government guidance, it is with much regret that the Ryedale Festival Trustees have decided to cancel all festival events planned for this July, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. 

Since publishing the festival brochure a few weeks ago, we have been overwhelmed with messages of goodwill from the festival community. We are now working on rescheduling all planned events into future festival periods. These will be announced in due course, along with details of how the festival plans to stay in touch with its many supporters through online platforms over the next few months.

The festival – along with all arts organisations – now faces a very challenging period. We will be enormously grateful if you could help us by contributing to our Festival Appeal. 

Please donate now to help sustain the festival through this difficult period and ensure future audiences will enjoy world-class live music in Ryedale. Every gift will make a difference. Thank you.

Our website will be kept fully updated as future plans fall into place. In the meantime, we hope all our supporters stay safe and look forward to welcoming you to Ryedale Festival as soon as possible.
