Welcome to the Harrogate International Festivals Press Office.

We can help arrange interviews with any of our speakers and performers, discuss on site photography and filming, and arrange Festival promotions and competitions.

Can I apply for press tickets?

Absolutely – we welcome reporters and reviewers to all of our Festivals. We allocate press passes, which allow access to the Festival site and facilities, and up to two tickets per publication for each event. Please click here to submit your request for press accrediation and ticket request.

Press tickets are strictly limited – due to the high volume of requests we receive, it’s helpful to know how you plan to cover the Festivals and events you hope to attend.

All applications are subject to ticket availability and Press Office approval. The Press Office will be in touch to confirm whether your application has been successful.

Can I arrange interviews with Festival participants?

All requests to interview speakers, performers and staff in advance of Harrogate International Festivals should be arranged through the Press Office. We will do everything we can to arrange your interview, and offer advice on suitable alternatives as necessary.

How do I get photographs of the Festivals and participants?

We have a library of high resolution images of our Festival participants. We also have an extensive library of past Festival images to give a flavour of the Festival atmosphere. Please get in touch with your requirements and we will send you through download links for the best images.

Professional photographers are welcome at all four Festivals, but pass numbers are strictly limited and must be arranged with the press office in advance of the relevant Festival.

Can I film or record events?

All on-site filming will need to be agreed with both the Press Office and participants in advance of the Festival. We look at all filming on a case-by-case basis, so please contact us and we will do everything we can to facilitate your request.
