Taizé Meeting - September

Taizé Meeting

There will be a Taize Meeting in the church at 7.30 p.m. on Tuesday, 24th September. You are very welcome to join us in our peaceful Lady Chapel for sung prayer and short periods of meditation.

If you would like to sit, listen and reflect you do not have to sing, just enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

Taizé meetings are open to all in the benefice, not just residents of Huttons Ambo.

Find out more about Taizé.

Ryedale Book Festival - October 19th and 20th 2013.

Ryedale Book Festival takes place on the weekend of October 19th and 20th 2013.

The festival has a packed programme of more than 30 events to suit all tastes and takes place in venues across Malton.

The heart of the festival will be in the Milton Rooms where there will be an all-day independent book fair with publishers from Yorkshire and beyond.

Other events include author talks, comedy, song-writing, writing and paper-cutting workshops. There will also be comedy cabaret, open mic, travelling storytelling, pavement art and live music.

And for the first time, the completed story of The Amazing Jungle Adventure will be on display in the Milton Rooms. The collaborative book was written and illustrated by more than 200 Ryedale schoolchildren with the help of children’s author Beth Dexter-Smith during the summer term.

The finale of the festival includes a supper and talk at The Talbot Hotel by renowned racing commentator Brough Scott, who will talk about two greats of the equine world - the late legendary trainer, Sir Henry Cecil, and Warrior, the ‘greatest horse who ever lived’.

A signed copy of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, which was purchased by the town last year, will also be on display at The Talbot Hotel during the weekend.

Programmes are available at libraries, TICs and participating venues across Ryedale. For more details and ticket information visit

In addition there is an 'open mic' event on October 5th at Pickering Library:

The event is hosted by York group The Spoken Word and gives readers a chance to stand up and recite their favourite poem, dramatic monologue or piece of creative non-fiction. Work can be your own or that of your favourite author.

The event takes place at 1.30pm at Pickering Library and costs £2 on the door. Children free.
