Ryedale Festival closes Saturday 31 July

Two weeks of outstanding music-making draw to a close this afternoon, with two performances of the same programme at 3pm and 6pm in Hovingham Hall. The main work is Schubert’s celebrated Octet.

We’ve enjoyed concerts at places like Duncombe Park, Birdsall House and Ampleforth Abbey, and welcomed the likes of Kathryn Tickell, the BBC Big Band, the renowned Albion String quartet and guitarist Miloš, to name but a few. African crossover band Sirocco in the Milton Rooms was a blast.

All good things must come to an end, but you have a final chance to feel the Festival effect. There is still plenty of availability for the 3pm performance today at Hovingham Hall. Details and how to book here: ryedalefestival.com or contact the box office on 01751 475888 or email [email protected].
