Give the gift of joy this Christmas

Christmas with Harrogate International Festivals

Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’re looking for last minute gift inspiration, search no further – we’ve got the perfect present for you.

Whether the special someone in your life is a music or a book lover, or just wants a great night out, our Festival events and subscriptions offer an experience that will uplift, entertain and inspire, prioritising joy and rejuvenation over the stress of excess clutter.

Launched this month, our annual Salon subscription gives access to six scintillating sessions at Berwins Salon North, Harrogate’s very own TED-style talks, combining food for thought with an intimate, cabaret setting to make an unforgettable night out.

Each expert speaker has the challenge of engaging their audience within a 25 minute set, interspersed with intervals allowing time for a chat with a friend over a drink from the bar. Voted number six in the ‘Top 100 Things to do in the World’ by GQ magazine, Berwins Salon North is the go-to night out for the post-clubbing generation – a gift to add some sparkle to your loved one’s 2024.

Brighten up New Year for music-loving friends and family with a subscription to the Harrogate International Sunday Series, or a ticket to any of our five stunning Sunday morning chamber concerts. Platforming the brightest stars in chamber music, the season features clarinettist Robert Plane, renowned pianists Clare Hammond and Daniel Lebhardt, rising stars the Astatine Trio and critically acclaimed violinist Hyeyoon Park.

With programmes showcasing a thrilling array of composers from classical giants Mozart, Mendelssohn and Brahms to contemporary composers Paquito D’Rivera and Edmund Finnis, the Sunday Series offers a joyful experience that will be remembered long after the last note has faded.

And if Salon and classical music aren’t quite right, our Festival gift vouchers start from £5 and are the ideal present for anyone who is passionate about the arts. They can be redeemed against any Harrogate International Festivals event, from our summer Music Festival and outdoor events to the internationally renowned Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival.

So don’t despair this Christmas, we’ve got your last minute shopping covered!
