White Horses and Unquiet Graves, Ripon

Jonny Hannah, who designed the identity for the museum, is to have a folk inspired one-man show at Hornseys Gallery in Ripon, which opens on June 18th and will run until the 18th July.


This promises to be a weekend to remember. Not only will this be the first solo show by Jonny Hannah in the north of England, but it will tie-in with events at Newby Hall as well. The Museum of British Folklore (in its caravan) is scheduled to visit Newby for a weekend of fun and frivolity on Saturday and Sunday of the 18th and 19th June, We've tried to have the private view as close to the Summer Solstice of the 22nd June to pay homage to British folklore, myth and ritual. The exhibition will include paintings, original prints and other assorted oddities and we are hoping that other special guests will make a trip north for the event. An original screenprint will be made to mark the event, part of the profits of which will go to the upkeep and development of The Museum of British Folklore.
