Upcoming Theatre Events in Harrogate & District

The Harrogate District has a wealth of theatre events in a wide variety of venues throughout the year.

From events that are part of the many festivals that feature in the district’s cultural programme, through to professional touring and in-house productions, or one of our high quality amateur dramatics groups, the range of theatre performances on offer means there is something for everyone.

The fully restored late Victorian Harrogate Theatre boasts a main auditorium seating over 500 and more intimate studio theatre with a full programme throughout the year.

Elsewhere the smaller Frazer Theatre in Knaresborough, the Pateley Bridge Playhouse and Masham Town Hall all boast varied theatrical programmes from the touring companies that visit our village halls to their own acclaimed productions, often exploring local history and themes.

Check out the full programme of Festivals that take place, many of which feature theatrical events. 

During the summer you will find outdoor productions at some of our famous attractions such as RHS Harlow Carr or Knaresborough Castle.  You can get comfortable with a picnic under the summer evening sky, or enjoy an alternative way of exploring the property as you follow the roving production through various locations in the grounds.

There is a very strong amateur dramatic offering with productions on both the main auditorium stage and the more intimate studio at Harrogate Theatre as well as smaller venues throughout the District.

It is easy to see why Harrogate was voted the happiest place to live for three years in a row with annual comedy festivals in both Harrogate and Knaresborough and a number of popular comedy clubs that run during the year.

The Harrogate district enjoys the very best from the UK comedy circuit for both established TV and radio comedy stars as well as up and coming names.

For those who like music with their drama all our venues feature opera and musical theatre and of course Harrogate hosts the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival every August when everything goes a little topsy-turvy.

With new events being added every week there’s always something dramatic to catch your eye when you visit the Harrogate district.
