Richmondshire District Council

Following the Yorkshire Dales Cheese Festival on 14-15 September at the Wensleydale Creamery, there will be a week long promotion of local produce until 21 September 2019.  

The week long 'Yorkshire Dales Cheese Festival, celebrating local produce' is now in its third year and as with the dark skies festival, it has grown and developed year on year. It is such a fantastic opportunity to showcase your business while promoting the natural beauty, wildlife, local produce and cultural heritage of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale AONB.

We would really like to be able to help promote your businesses this year by offering you the opportunity to do something unique and different as part of the festival, which we can promote for you during the week, to celebrate local produce. This can be absolutely anything from farm visits, guided walks, cookery demonstrations, tasting evenings, to unique menus, and open door experiences to look behind the scenes of your business.  

The promotion which we can offer you not only promotes your event, but it also promotes your business locally and nationally. We try and use as many different outlets as possible. If you do create a unique event, you may be fortunate enough to be promoted in the national papers as well as the local news, or you may get a camera crew to your event - as we did with some of our dark skies events this year.

If you have any queries or you'd like to take part, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to help in any way we can.
