The Ryestream takes you places others cannot reach

In the coming week, even though the House is closed, you can be taken inside Castle Howard’s Great Hall, Long Gallery and Chapel, all the while listening to outstanding music, courtesy of the Ryedale Festival. From Sunday 19th July till Sunday 26th July eight concerts are being streamed on the Ryestream, the new online platform.
