FILMS and exhibitions will provide plenty for visitors to see at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes throughout November.

A free exhibition that explores the untold stories of Black and Asian people in the Yorkshire Dales has been on tour through the summer and is now back at the National Park Authority-owned Museum until November 15.

The exhibition - "Hidden History of the Dales, People and Places waiting to be discovered"- includes further research discoveries and some fabulous carnival costume from the Leeds Carnival.

The Wensleydale Camera Club is holding its 50th anniversary print exhibition between November 3 and December 1. It will include more than 80 prints from the 1950s to 2000. Members will be giving a slide show at 2.30pm on Sunday November 25.

In the foyer of the museum, in Station Yard, there will be a display of children's photography taken for a project run by Richmondshire District Council. "Snap Happy, Snap Sad" will be on show between November 9 and 16.

Friends of the Museum will be demonstrating spinning and rug making and explaining a variety of textile techniques between 2pm and 4pm on November 6 and, on Friday November 16, National Park Authority Conservation Support Officer Don McLellan will give the Friends of the Museum lecture on the subject of "Traditional Houses in Wensleydale".

On Tuesday November 20 at 7.30pm, Film around Richmondshire presents "Yorkshire Life Remembered" - a screening of archive film footage including film shot locally.

The remarkable selection includes early pioneering film of the 1900s, 1930s newsreels, home movies and professional documentaries made about the region and highlights from early television programmes. Tickets are £5 from the Museum or from the Leyburn and Richmond Tourist Information Centres.

For further details or to book a place on any event, contact the Museum, which is open daily from 10am to 5pm, on 01969 6666210 or email hawes@yorkshiredales.org.uk
