Slingsby to host Ryedale Festival Concert


The Ryedale Festival summer programme was released at the packed Launch Concert in Helmsley on Sunday evening.

We can now reveal that the Festival returns to Slingsby for the first time since 2012, with a late-night candlelit recital by the acclaimed baroque violin player Rachel Podger. This will be held on 19th July in All Saints’ Church.
