Upcoming Live Music Events in Harrogate & District

From the country's best performers in our landmark venues, to talented local artists adding some cheers to an evening out in our many local clubs and bars there's music to be enjoyed throughout the Harrogate District.

There are annual festivals bringing wonderful music events to our venues, from the timeless operettas of the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival every August to the Harrogate International Music Festival that runs through June and July.

The Royal Hall, a stunningly restored venue in the heart of Harrogate is host to regular concerts through-out the year featuring a range of performers and styles, from soloists and world renowned ensemble performers to Opera and Ballets productions as well as regular concerts from our own Harrogate Symphony Orchestra.

Choral events take place across the district in a number of spaces, often in the beautiful churches we are so lucky to have in the district or in Ripon Cathedral with its beautifully lit gothic nave.

Contemporary music around Harrogate is well served by nightly performances in some of Harrogate’s local bars and clubs, and across the surrounding towns where local and touring musicians and performers can be found in the pubs and halls around Harrogate district.

The good old village bandstands host an array of performers on Sunday afternoons through the summer months, from the brass bands you might traditionally expect through to local singer songwriters of acoustic and folk music.

Tribute acts offer us a chance to celebrate our favourite bands that might be so big they only play stadiums or may have broken up meaning you might never get to see them live.  Join likeminded fans for a fun evening celebrating the music of your childhood favourites or even just indulge in some cheesy fun, from Abba to Oasis, Foo Fighters to Gary Barlow, regular tribute nights take place throughout the year.
