Snowdrop season!

There might not be much snow around this winter but the snowdrops keep coming anyway!  They’re at their peak in mid-February so if you’re passing, drop by to enjoy the spectacle.

‘A year in poems’

This year we’re inviting visitors, guests and friends to submit original poems for us to add to our website and display on our notice boards.  Each month, a poem with be selected from those submitted.  Poems could be about life in Malhamdale, the wonderful Yorkshire Dales landscape, the natural world, or something you find in the beauty and tranquillity of Airton Friends Meeting House.  They could be reflective, funny or inspiring.  You don’t need to have written before, and submissions from people of all ages and backgrounds are welcome!  See ‘A year in poems’ on this site for further details.

Paying for your stay the cashless way

From January 2020 card payments are now possible!  Thanks to our new iZettle card reader, there’s no need to worry if you don’t have cash to hand when you arrive for your overnight stay – just a debit or credit card.  Of course, the old ways still work: we’re happy to accept cash and cheques.

Events at the Meeting House

We’re thrilled to announce a visit by the world-renowned Chetham’s School of Music to perform a lunchtime recital on Saturday 28th March, 1.30pm.  The programme will include Poulenc’s Sextet for Piano and Wind, and Reicha’s Woodwind Quintet.  Tickets are £10 (£7 concessions) and will be available via Chetham’s website from late February.

Airton Friends Meeting is grateful for the support of the YDNP Sustainable Development Fund in assisting with the recent purchase of our piano, making it possible to bring a varied and exciting series of events to the heart of Malhamdale.


If you would like to hold an event making use of the piano or of any kind suitable for the Meeting House and Barn, get in touch with the Friend in Residence.
