A start of season get-together is planned for local businesses to hear about Ryedale Folk Museum’s busy year of projects and celebrations.
Local businesses, including hotel and B&B owners, are being given the opportunity to hear about the Hutton-le-Hole’s attractions for its 50th anniversary at the event on Tuesday.
Presentations will be given by director Jennifer Smith at 10.30am and 2.30pm and representatives of local businesses are invited to drop-in to the museum any time during the day.
The museum has an eventful year ahead as it celebrates 50 years of being open to visitors.
The open-air museum houses over 20 heritage buildings spread over six acres as well as 40,000 objects and antiques.
Since 1964 the museum has continually grown and expanded its collection which represents rural life in Ryedale.
Jennifer said: “The museum is an integral part of the area’s tourism economy and I am particularly interested in how we can work with relevant businesses to support each other’s activities.
“I hope that local businesses will join us to hear about our plans for the year ahead and stay for a cup of tea and a chat!”
The event is free of charge but the museum wishes people to register their interest in advance by calling (01751) 417367.
