The summer of 2019 saw the Royal Hall transform into Harrogate’s very own version of the Spiegeltent for one weekend only. We relived the iconic days of the Hacienda with the legend that is Graeme Park, we strutted our stuff with the Gypsy Queens and we let our fabulous side run wild as the House of Burlesque dancers returned to party all night long at our Silent Disco.

The little ones got an entire Festival to themselves! Designed with kids in mind and curated with imagination, stretching everything from their brain to their toes with ballet, music making, storytelling and science shows. We stepped into the magical world of Puss in Boots with Northern Ballet‘s interactive workshop, explored live music and songs with Made with Music, had fun with all the family in Rainbow Factory‘s interactive storytelling adventure, and finished the day with a bang as Mad Science took us on a Mission to Mars!
