29 April - 1 May 2023
Richmond MayFest is a festival of historical and traditional music and dancing - in the perfect setting of Richmond, North Yorkshire. It all takes place every early May Bank Holiday weekend and we had our first ever Mayfest on April 30th, May 1st and May 2nd 2022. This year's festival takes place April 29th, April 30th and May 1st - find our more here.
Our venues include Richmond Castle, St Mary's Parish Church, The Station, Richmond Town Hall, Richmond School, St Agatha's in Easby - and most importantly the Market Place and the streets around the town centre.
Richmond MayFest is a community event. Lots of events are totally free, and all ticketed events offer reduced prices for local residents - that's from postcodes DL9, DL10 and DL11.
We are always on the lookout for people to help with MayFest. Please get in touch if you'd like to be involved. For example:
