For over 50 years, the Swaledale Festival has attracted visitors to the North Yorkshire Dales. This year's Festival (27 May – 10 June) brings a stunning mix of music, talks, poetry, film, puppets and guided walks.
With 57 events, there's something for all tastes and all ages. The programme is at swalefest.org, and the box office opens on Monday 13 March. Move fast! Tickets for the big-name events go very quickly. So do the walks.
