Win a Family Ticket for ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ at Ryedale Folk Museum


Win 1 Family Ticket (2 Adults and up to 3 children) to the live ‘open air’ performance of Illyria-The Emperor’s New Clothes at Ryedale Folk Museum on Friday 21st July, Includes free popcorn for the performance and an annual pass for the Ryedale Folk Museum.

Now in their 26th season, Illyria return with one of the most famous cautionary tales ever told.  As in so many of Hans Christian Andersen’s stories, beneath the fancy clothes of the tale lies something more meaningful; human weaknesses are satirised mercilessly; and a capacity for loving is the highest value. There are larger-than-life characters, lots and lots to join in with – and an ending that will leave you helpless with laughter!

Please note – there is NO nudity in the production. Although one of the actors may be a little chilly…

Enjoy the atmospheric setting of Ryedale Folk Museum for an evening of family-friendly, open-air theatre with Illyria.  Bring your own seating/rug.  There will be a pop-up bar serving drinks and snacks, but please feel free to bring your own picnic to enjoy before the performance.

Free car parking courtesy of the North York Moors National Park – please park at the Hutton le Hole NYMNP car park (located on Moor Lane, 300m from the Museum).
