Every year, the Ryedale Festival welcomes outstanding performers from all over the world to perform a wide-ranging and distinctive programme in spectacular venues in and around Ryedale, North Yorkshire – an area full of history and natural beauty. Described by The Guardian as ‘the jewel in Yorkshire’s cultural crown’ and by The Times as ‘Yorkshire’s boldest festival’, it enjoys a large, loyal and enthusiastic audience, the warm support of the local community and a reputation as one of the most exciting and enterprising summer festivals in Europe. It also creates valuable opportunities for the next generation through its work with young artists, and in local schools and community groups.
