Malton and Norton Camera Club

In 2016, Malton Museum asked Malton and Norton District Camera Club to respond to the theme of Malton Goes to Market. The members were asked to explore creatively the local heritage and capture a snapshot of life in Malton and Norton today. The successful images then featured within the exhibition and a catalogue.

Ryedale Family History Group

The group recently assisted the museum with a research project based on an indenture, which features in the exhibition between a young boy, Fred Witty with a local baker in 1888. The report is now displayed alongside the indenture in the exhibition.

Tales of the Castle

In 2014 Malton Museum participated in a joint project with Kirkbymoorside Camera Club, Malton Castle Garden volunteers, and artist Peter Coates explore the history of Malton’s castle, through a display and magnificent sculptural feature on a newly-restored stretch of wall in the gardens.
