Ryedale Folk Museum at the Cinema!

Ryedale Folk Museum had the pleasure of loaning some objects for the making of
  Wuthering Heights by Andrea Arnold.
Its in the Cinema's now!! so go see it and look out for us in the credits!

We provided a range of general household and agricultural items.

Here you can see some of the items we lent out including the stool (made by Kevin the Manager), griddle and pit hook.

A few more items they borrowed including our dough trough, spice jars, butter churn and much more.

We also lent out a number of agricultural items seen in the film including a drenching horn, sycthe, branding irons and leg hook to name a few.

We're Famous! :)

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.
