Harrogate International Festivals

Join & Support


Harrogate International Festivals is a creative organisation, that works year round to bring the performing arts, literature and community and education projects to Harrogate and Yorkshire.

For over 50 years Harrogate International Festival has been firing up hearts and minds and bringing the very best of international excellence, innovation and success right here to Harrogate. But we haven’t been doing it alone.

As a charity we rely on the support of sponsors, donors, Friends of the Festivals and kind supporters in helping us present the very best of music and literature on year.  This support enables us to welcome the worlds biggest writers to Harrogate cementing our crown as the UK’s ‘bookiest town’ and our pedigree for classical music; to celebrate Harrogate as a hub for the arts in Yorkshire; to commission new work; to offer creative learning programmes for schools; to offer learning experiences through the arts to disadvantaged children and young people; to offer free to access community events; to break down barriers and much more.

We would like to thank all those who support us and if you would like to find out more about how you can join and support us, please read on using the links.
