Calling all foodies in Ryedale! 
It’s that time of year again! Malton Food Lovers Festival sets up stall in the picturesque market town on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May 2018. 
Malton’s town centre will be transformed into a gastronomic destination with around 180 food stalls, chef demos, street food, music and a festival bar. 
The festival is approaching its tenth anniversary and as a gift to gastronomes everywhere, all the chef demos are free this year. 
Nearly a decade of delightful dishes and ingredients has been served up in Malton, widely regarded as Yorkshire’s Food Capital. 
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! 
Set in the magnificent Gardens of Castle Howard, this spectacular classical concert will be a night to remember for the whole family on Saturday 18th August 2018. 
Guest soloists include Lesley Garrett CBE and tenor Geraint Dodd, joined on stage by the London Gala Orchestra conducted by Stephen Bell. 
Music includes well-known classics such as Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Pomp & Circumstance No. 1.  
There will also be a Spitfire flyover, spectacular lasers, a fireworks finale and of course an atmosphere that is second to none. 
Book your taxi in good time, as this is one of our busiest nights of the year! Telephone 01653 696969 or click here. 
So winter’s not quite finished with us … yet. 
The temperature is set to drop even further and snow is expected to fall until the end of February and into early March. 
We understand this can make it difficult to get about. 
While the main roads will hopefully clear, the side roads and pavements can be a worry. Once the snow get slushy, then Jack Frost visits and surfaces turn to treacherous sheets of ice. 
Here at Station Taxis, we have our taxis at the ready. 
Our experienced team of drivers can help keep you moving when the weather’s against you! 
We can help with school runs, shopping trips, hospital visits, and journeys to work or the airport. Let us worry about getting you there safe and sound.

Reopened by HM The Queen in 2010, the theatre, which is close to Scarborough's beautiful North Bay, has gradually expanded its programme and this year promises to be the best yet! 
Be sure to get your tickets and then book your taxi with us for the best night out in the Yorkshire.

Always a sombre day of the year, Remembrance Sunday falls on 12th November and is a chance for us to remember those brave men and women who fought for our freedom. 
War memorials throughout our area will be the focal point for wreath laying and Remembrance Services. 
You can also wear your 'poppy with pride' as they are in the shops now. 
The scarlet poppy is the symbol of remembrance, a poignant flower that grows along hedgerows and in our meadows during the summer. The significance of the poppy can be traced back to the First World War (1914 to 1918) during which most of the fighting took place in Western Europe and in particularly in Flanders, France. The countryside was blasted by gunfire and swamped by mud, transforming the rural landscape to a brutal battlefield. However, the red Flanders poppies, even with its delicate petals, were resilient and grew in their thousands, flourishing in the blood, mud and shrapnel of no man’s land and between the rows and rows of wooden crosses that marked soldiers’ graves.
