BEST CHRISTMAS WEEKEND EVER!!!!
We finished the Ryedale Folk Museum season with a wonderful Christmas Weekend Celebration!
We opened up our doors for the weekend with free entry and plenty of festive cheer.
We had record breaking visitors and would like to thank everyone who braved the cold weather to come.
We would also like to say a thank you to Ampleforth Community Children's Choir and Kirkbymoorside Primary School choir and band that came and sang, they sounded great and really added to the Christmas atmosphere.
The weekend wouldn't have been successful without the hard work and support from our staff and volunteers who gave up their time to make this Christmas Weekend the best ever! From baking mince pies and providing raffle prizes to helping kids with crafts in the Study Centre, so I must say a BIG THANK YOU for all their hard work.

Once again a big thank you to everyone who came and spent the Christmas Weekend with us.
We look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
