There is free parking for Caravans/Motor homes at all the venues except The Royal Oak in Settle, but the Social Club have agreed to allow us to park on their car park again meaning only a short walk along Duke Street to the venue.

Parking at the Midland Hotel in Appleby is in the railway station car park opposite, courtesy of Northern Rail and by permit issued upon arrival on the Wednesday afternoon.

There will be a free supper laid on at each venue, courtesy of the respective Management  and, as usual, contributions will be requested in each venue to offset the Musicians OPE's.

We hope you are able to join us for all or part of the 2019 "Ride 2 Stride Festival of Walks, Talks & Music"?
