Two firm favourites on the autumn events calendar are Ryedale Book Festival and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway Annual Steam Gala – great for bookworms and steam train enthusiasts alike! 
For 2017, Ryedale Book Festival has celebrated reading and all things book related throughout the year. 
And the next exciting chapter takes place Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd September 2017. 
With events taking place in a variety of locations, from the Milton Rooms to Jack Berry House, our drivers would be happy to take to one or all venues so you can relax and enjoy meeting some brilliant authors. 
Following a year of ‘stable rest’, Malton Festival of Racing is back with us on Sunday 17th September. 
The event, formerly called Malton Open Stables Day, is a key date in the local equine calendar, sponsored by Arena Racing Company. 
Malton, regarded by many as Yorkshire’s Food Capital, is hosting its Harvest Food Festival on Saturday 9th September. 
With game, seafood, baking, cheese, fruit, beer and much more, it will set the taste buds tingling between 9am and 5pm. 
A sister event to the famous Malton Food Lovers Festival, the market town will feature around 80 stalls in and around its market square. 
That means the town will be busy, so be sure to book your taxi with us a bit earlier than usual, just in case! 
This autumnal event will include chef demos, cookery lessons, talks, tastings, entertainment, a bar, live music and some fab street food. 
As well as the harvest-themed event, Malton is also host to its monthly food market, which returns in October. 
As the kids go back to school, we know it's going to get busier on the roads. 
That means at peak times, buses and trains will be packed. 
So let Station Taxi take the strain of those journeys that require four wheels!

'The Best of Country Shows’ takes place in the picturesque village of Thornton Le Dale on Wednesday 9th August.

Have your 'herd'? Two of Ryedale's finest annual festivals take place in July - time to get out and enjoy yourself!  
Living in a rural area such as Ryedale has its advantages: beautiful views, peaceful atmosphere, and a fascinating history. However, it can be diffcult to get about. Station Taxis, along with Totally Socially Locality (Ryedale), have come up with an affordable solution ... 
For many of us, particularly those who don’t own a car or find it hard to get around, the lack of public transport is a concern. 
We’ve teamed up with Jo Oliver, of Totally Socially to develop a new village ‘hopper’ service that will link the village of Langton to Norton and Malton. 
We’ll be running a ‘book and ride’ service from our offices at Malton Railway Station, from Burythorpe to Malton with pick ups at Langton and Birdsall once a day, Monday to Friday, for the cost of just £2.50 per journey. 
Now in its 131st year, Malton Show will soon be upon us! 
This year’s date is Sunday 2nd July at Scampston Park, near Malton. 
Malton Show is on a more modest scale than the larger agricultural summer shows that take place in the area. 
Often called ‘the friendly one’, Malton Show is a firm favourite and certainly attracts the crowds. 
The show includes cattle, sheep and goats; the fascinating fur and feather section; show jumping; a miniature railway; sheep dog trials; craft tent; a horticulture section; farm machinery; heavy horses; trade stands; food stands and a public bar. You can take the dog too! 
This year’s chosen charity is the League of Friends, now celebrating 40 years of raising funds for Malton Hospital. 
Malton Show has experienced good weather over the last few years, and if the sun shines, remember to take the sun cream, as Scampston is a real suntrap and the temperatures can soar. 
Tickets prices are £10 for adults, £8 for over 65s, kids aged 11 to 18 cost £5 while under-11s go free. 
If you decide to take your car, parking is free. However, Station Taxis can also take you from A to B on what will be a busy day on the roads. Give us a call on 01653 696969.
