Christmas 2019 Comes to Ryedale
Posted on 8th December 2019 at 14:06
Can you believe it’s that time of year again?
Santa will be preparing his sleigh and Rudolph will be eating as much fodder as he can!
Here in Ryedale, we are spoilt for choice with things to do during the festive build up.
Our area has lots to keep us interested and excited as Christmas Day approaches, and our friendly, professional drivers can get you from A to B in comfort and style …
One of the first events is being held at Castle Howard, from Saturday 16th November to Sunday 5th January 2020, called A Christmas Masquerade.
This magnificent stately home between Malton and York hosts a festive spectacle that will include jaw-dropping decorations, open fire, candlelight, live music, Christmas shopping, delicious food, Santa’s Grotto and lots more.
Malton, sometimes known as Yorkshire’s Food Capital offers many opportunities to stock up on Christmas goodies before ‘the big day’.
With a number of foodie businesses situated in Talbot Yard which is close to the Market Square, and a selection of independent businesses throughout the town, Malton is a great place to carry out your Christmas shopping.
There are various Christmas Lights Switch-On throughout the region with Pickering and Thornton-le-Dale now sparkling ready for the festive season.
The market town of Helmsley is a picturesque place to prepare for the festive period and this year the town will host its seventh annual Christmas Tree Festival. Following a preview evening on Friday 29th November at All Saint’s Church, the festival officially opens on Saturday 30th November and runs daily from 10am to 4pm until Sunday 15th December.
Kirkbymoorside, often considered the gateway to the moors, is also looking spectacular.
In addition to the above events, lots of our lovely villages, communities and organisations will hold Christmas events that will get everyone into the festive spirit. Attractions include Ryedale Folk Museum, Eden Camp, Scampston Hall and many others. The North York Moors National Park is the setting for the Santa Specials on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway
Here at the Station Taxis office, we are now encouraging our customers to book their taxis in advance where possible. The festive time is a busy one for us as we can also take you to and from your Christmas parties.
Have a healthy and happy Christmas, everyone!
Please note all events and dates are correct at time of publishing. Please check the above events are taking place before you travel, thank you!
