Rosedale Show 2016

In spite of a couple of sharp showers in mid-afternoon, the Rosedale Show 2016 passed off well. Numbers were thought to be down on last year. mainly because of the adverse weather forecasts, but those who did come to show enjoyed the day. Some photos:

Rosedale Show 2015

Well, it turned out nice in the end! A bright if breezy day brought in the crowds to the Milburn Field today, Saturday 15 August, for Rosedale’s annual show, the ‘best little show’ in the county. Numbers of visitors is thought to be slightly up on last year’s attendance at around 3,750. However, there were fewer trade stands, but there were plenty of the ones that mattered!

A few souvenirs of the day:

WW1 History Exhibition – 13 to 14 September 2014

Both days of the Local Villages WW1 history exhibition were well attended at the Updale Reading Room, Rosedale.

The Great War 1914 – 1918

On the eve of the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War on 4 August 1914, we should pause to remember those from Rosedale who gave their lives in that horrific conflict.

A number of local history societies, including Rosedale History Society, are staging a Great War exhibition at the NYM Railway station at Pickering for the next week, after which the Rosdale displays will be shown at Rosedale Show on 16 August.

Finally, there is a planned ‘Lights Out’ throughout the nation on Monday night, 4 August, between 10 and 11pm, when all public buildings will turn off all lights except one per building. Private householders are being encouraged to do the same, with perhaps just one candle or similar small light in a window during the dark hour.

The fragile beauty of luxury glass craft… Yorkshire style

Kate Jones of Gillies Jones Glass, with landscape bowls which will be seen in the Crafted: Makers of the Exceptional exhibition at London’s Royal Academy of Arts.
Work by Yorkshire glassmakers Gillies Jones will be seen in a showcase celebrating the work of the UK’s leading craftmakers.
Rosedale glassmakers, Stephen Gillies and Kate Jones, are appearing in the exhibition at London’s Royal Academy of Arts, as alumni of the Crafted mentoring programme run by Walpole, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to further the interests of the British luxury industry. They are showing five large pieces of glass, each decorated with a landscape inspired by their surroundings in the North York Moors National Park.
The showcase, which runs from Thursday to Saturday, is free of charge to visit and open to all.
Ms Jones said: “We’re delighted to be selected as part of this prestigious showcase of contemporary craft, showing our work alongside 30 makers across the disciplines in a unique cultural organisation: a place where art is made, exhibited and debated.”
The Crafted programme was founded four years ago to
protect and promote traditional skills that are often forgotten
and overlooked in an era of digital design and mass production.
