Start of Season get-together for local businesses – CANCELLED
The Ryedale Folk Museum is sorry to announce that the our planned business open day on Wednesday 25th March is cancelled due to severe access restrictions to Hutton le Hole village, caused by on going road works.
There are severe vehicle restrictions to Hutton le Hole village, from today for 2 weeks. The museum will remain open as normal during this time.
We have been advised by the road works contractor that the greatest disruption will take place today (Tuesday 17th March) where there will be no access to the main National Park car park.
We understand that from Wednesday 18th March there will be access to the National Park car park if visitors have followed the diversion order which takes them through Appleton le Moors and Lastingham.
The museum was only given notice of these works last Friday and we apologise for any inconvenience caused, if you are in any doubt before setting off please call the museum on 01751 417367.
We will continue to put updates on our website and social media channels as the situation changes. Once again we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
At their annual start of season get-together for local businesses.
Local businesses are being given a fantastic opportunity to visit Ryedale Folk Museum for free and find out about its plans for the coming year. The open day will take place on Wednesday 25 March from 10am – 4pm. The invitation is extended to local business owners and employees including accommodation providers, pubs, restaurants, outdoor activity centres, other attractions and shop owners. Local businesses are encouraged to drop-in to the museum any time during the day. Museum Director, Jennifer Smith and other museum staff will be available to chat about plans for the year and answer any questions.
The museum has an eventful year ahead as it takes on its 51st season of being open to visitors and the challenge of making sure they keep the visitor experience refreshing and attractive. The open-air museum houses over twenty heritage buildings spread over six acres as well as forty thousand objects and antiques. Since 1964 the museum has continually grown and expanded its collection which represents rural life in Ryedale.
Jennifer Smith, director commented “Our open day provides local business owners with a chance to look round the museum. Our visitors increasingly want direct recommendations and insider knowledge, and we hope that businesses will support the museum and where possible the museum can help return the favour.”
Those attending will find out more about the year’s events, upcoming art gallery exhibitions and various special projects. The event is free of charge but the museum wishes people to register their interest in advance by calling the museum on 01751 417367.
