As we’re still in the depths of winter, there’s never been a better time to go stargazing! 
The North York Moors National Park is set to host its Dark Skies Festival from 15th February to 3rd March 2019, incorporating 17 days of discovery. 
50 years ago come July, man first landed on the Moon. Neil Armstrong set foot on our nearest celestial neighbour supported by Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. 
To celebrate this special occasion, the Dark Skies Festival will focus on our lunar satellite and there is a full moon during the first week of the event. 
Where will 2019 take you? 
We can't believe that 2018 is nearly over. 
It's been a hectic year. 
As well as one of the most unpredictable years in terms of weather patterns, it has also been a busy year in Ryedale. 
Lots of great events, including Last Night of the Proms at Castle Howard, numerous agricultural shows, some amazing festivals, and of course lots of markets took place ... and it all begins again from January! 
This year’s Remembrance Day fell on Sunday, which is quite rare. It was a day the world remembered: 11th November. 
Not only that but it was exactly 100 years since the Armistice of 1918 was signed. 
Following the bloodshed of World War One, which had entered its fifth year of conflict, the signing of the Armistice signalled much needed peace in Europe at 11am prompt – the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. 
Following the cessation of hostilities, German troops fell back behind the Rhine. 
So how did Armistice Day become Remembrance Sunday? 
Not far from Malton’s bustling town centre you’ll find Eden Camp, one of the world’s leading modern history theme museums. 
While events take place throughout the year, this award-winning attraction is well worth a visit at any time if you’re a history buff. 
The site, based just off the A169 Malton to Pickering road, has a landmark Spitfire in its grounds, so you know when you’ve arrived! 
So what’s so special about Eden Camp? 
The site, which occupies a large area and includes numerous themed huts and exhibits, was once a prisoner of war camp for Italian solders in the early 1940s. 
Ryedale Book Festival invites you to come along to their autumn outing as part of their year long events itinerary. 
The Festival holds an amazing array of literary events throughout the Ryedale district, and during October will host a series of fabulous autumnal events. 
These include: 
Friday 5th October 2018 - Alexander McCall Smith who penned the No.1 Detective Agency books, will appear at Helmsley Arts Centre at 7pm to 9pm.

With the arrival of (a very late) spring, it’s time to think about the racing season at York. There’s no better location for putting on the gladrags and cracking open a bottle of chilled bubbly! 
The racing season at the Knavesmire begins with the Dante Festival from Wednesday 16th May. This popular event in includes the Betfred Dante on Thursday 17th May and concludes with the Yorkshire Cup on Friday 18th May. 
As this is the first race event ‘outing’ at York, there’ll be a buzz in the air and fresh grass for the horses to stretch out their legs and cover the furlongs. 
However, the Dante Festival is the first of many ‘meets’ of the social season.  
There are dates throughout the summer ... 
It’s that time of year again – the Tour de Yorkshire is set to return to parts of Ryedale. 
This year’s cycle race will be held over four days, commencing Thursday 3rd May and concluding on Sunday 6th May 2018. 
Stage Three which takes place on Saturday 5th May, is the one that will visit parts of Ryedale. The route follows a gruelling 181 km starting in Richmond and finishing in Scarborough. 
Following sprints in the Yorkshire Dales and trips through the market towns of Northallerton and Thirsk, the cyclists will head into the North York Moors National Park including the steep and curvaceous Cote de Sutton Bank, which as we know is bad enough if tackling it as a driver of a vehicle! 
Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre – the largest open-air venue of its kind in Europe – is revealing it’s incredible Summer 2018 line-up. 
And this fantastic venue is about 40-minute drive from the Malton or Pickering area – Station Taxis can take you door to door.
