Welcome to the Rosedale blog. This is where we share news and information about events in Rosedale and the wider community throughout the year. You’ll also find news about the village timetable, our micro enterprises, school events, clubs, and lively socials.
The wonderful Esk Valley Theatre is back with a new production, a very entertaining mystery set in the North York Moors written and directed by Mark Stratton. It runs at the Glaisdale village hall until 26 August. Details of ticket prices and performance dates and times can be found by ringing the number shown or on the website:
The small cast of four are all professional actors with extensive credits in local and national theatre, television, radio and film. The plot looks at how individuals’ characters can change within new environments and is in turn thoughtful, mysterious, exciting and with a leavening of local humour.
A reminder that ‘Carols on The Green’, in aid of The Yorkshire Air Ambulance, will take place by Abbey Stores on Friday 23 December at 6.30pm and a Service of Holy Communion will be held in St Mary and St Lawrence Church, Rosedale Abbey on Saturday 24 December at 10.00pm. All are most welcome.
The well loved Carols on The Green event in aid of The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is back and we look forward to seeing you all on Friday 23 December outside Abbey Stores for delicious mulled cider, mince pies and a hearty sing-song.
Remember to wrap up warm, bring a torch and, we would suggest, an umbrella!
A number of events around the dale are taking place to celebrate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Most of the events are in aid of the Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal and you can contribute directly during the week at the events or by BACS payment to Save Rosedale Abbey Church, account no 35397892, sort code 05-05-70 at Virgin Money.
Some images from the celebrations in the dale are below:
The excellent concert on 9 June in the church was a fitting finale to a very successful Platinum Jubilee week in Rosedale. Congratulations and thanks to all who organised the many events and to all the volunteers who helped run them so well. Many visitors commented on on the bright and friendly atmosphere in the village throughout the period and Rosedale can be proud of its tribute to HM The Queen and its efforts in raising much needed funds for the church’s restoration. The Church Treasurer is now drawing breath and will publish the financial results shortly. Remember, you can continue giving at any time to this vital effort, either in the boxes in the church itself or by BACS to Save Rosedale Abbey Church at Virgin Money account number 35397892, sort code 05-05-70
Afternote: the final amount for the church appeal raised after costs is a magnificent £4,530! Again, well done to all involved.

The Moorland Voices choir, directed by Clare Haynes, gave an excellent concert in St Mary and St Lawrence Church in Rosedale Abbey on Friday night. An appreciative audience was entertained with a wide programme of folk, gospel and jazz numbers, both choral and instrumental, which raised £700 pounds for the church appeal fund from ticket sales, donations and the auction of a watercolour picture of Rosedale.
Our thanks go again to Clare Haynes and the choir and to the volunteers who set up the event and provided the delicious snacks and wines which contributed to a most enjoyable evening.
