The loss of the Harrogate Borough Council Grant has had a great effect on the viability of the Festival.

Note 1:  We are very grateful for a significant legacy (not included in the above numbers), received in the year ending May 2016.  The legacy and reserves are helping us through this transition period, but clearly the Festival cannot continue to sustain the recent losses.
This year, we regret that, through necessity, we will be charging for accompanists and increasing the price of venue entry fees and programmes.
