The Ryedale Festival is one of the country’s most exciting, enterprising and friendly festivals, described by The Guardian as ‘the jewel in Yorkshire’s cultural crown’ and The Times as ‘Yorkshire’s boldest music festival’. The Ryedale Festival Patrons, Members and Friends are a very important source of support, through membership, donations and fund raising events, and also give much welcomed practical assistance during the Festival.

Our generous supporters are at the heart of the festival, enjoying priority booking amongst many other benefits. Above all, they provide the support that enables a unique festival to thrive and develop, nurturing talent, and helping bring great music to North Yorkshire at reasonable ticket prices.

See each membership option above. During the priority booking periods, each member/friend may purchase a maximum of two/four tickets per event. Discount, where applicable, will only apply to the member’s ticket. Additional tickets may be purchased after the priority booking period.
