RYEDALE Folk Museum celebrates its 50th anniversary by stepping back to the 1960s this weekend.

As part of the event, the Pickering Sixties festival group will set up a pop-up museum with memorabilia and classic cars. Kate Pickup, from the festival group, said: “We are really looking forward to two fun-packed days. We’ll be helping to put everyone in the party mood.”

North Yorkshire Business Enterprise Partnership will be managing a rocket launch challenge on both days. Hutton-le-Hole, where the museum is based, is entering into the spirit by hosting a scarecrow hunt. Trail sheets can be purchased from the museum for £1, with all proceeds going to the village hall.

Sammie Phoenix, from the village hall committee, said: “Visitors will be entertained and amused by the fantastic scarecrows. We’re looking forward to a fun weekend.”

The festival and scarecrow event takes place on Saturday and Sunday, from 11am to 4pm daily. Activities are included in the admission price.
