About the event

Join star singer Victoria Simmonds, storyteller Rosie Barrett, and an all-age local cast for the world premiere of a new Community Song Cycle inspired by the famous Lyke-Wake Walk. You’ll meet cheeky hobs, angry mermaids, resourceful giants, wise witches and other characters from local folk legends. Presented in association with the Richard Shephard Music Foundation and the Ryedale Folk Museum, with new music by John Barber, old music by the likes of Schubert and Handel, and words co-created by participants with Hazel Gould, this is an evocative and mysterious tapestry of magical thinking, Yorkshire superstitions and the power of imagination.
