Syllabus for 2018

The Syllabus for 2018 has been sent to the printer (8th September 2017).  It is also available on this website as a PDF on the Syllabus page.  If you want a hardcopy please send an SAE to our Festival Secretary, Linda Wilson.  Linda's contact details are on the Contacts page.  Once printed, copies will also be available from Music House and many North Yorkshire Public Libraries.


The venue for 2018 is Harrogate High School


After a successful 2017 Festival, we will again be at Harrogate High School (HHS), Ainsty Road, Harrogate, HG1 4AP on the 2nd-4th, 9th-11th and 16th-18th March (www.harrogatehigh.co.uk).


2017 was our first year at HHS, a brand new building only available to us a few days after it was opened to pupils.

The Festival organising committee were very happy with the location and are grateful for the strong support of the school staff.

Mostly, the building suited our needs.  We have learned a few of the intricacies, limitations and some other potential of the site.  These is being taken into account for 2018 when we allocate the rooms.  If you felt cramped in 2017, we hope to address that in 2018.

The 2017 Festival finished with a final concert on 19th March 2017


The Final concert and the Young Musician of the Festival Competition was held on 19th March. The 2017 Young Musician of the Year is Theo Pedley. Theo is a rather talented percussionist. Congratulations to Theo and his fellow finalists.
