Partner Benefits


Make the most of your membership with a host of Friends benefits across town

As a Friend of the Festival you play an important part in the success of our charity and we are delighted to be able to offer you a little bit extra with your membership. Working in partnership with local businesses in and around the Harrogate district, we are now able to offer these exclusive benefits when you show your valid Friend of the Festival membership card:

Pop into Starling for a morning brew and you could easily end up staying until bedtime. After all, the coffee machine is dialled in and always ready for action until closing time. On the food front, hand-crafted Neapolitan style pizzas are the big draw, but the locally sourced brunch menu is also a winner and available every day from opening time.
