The 2022 Syllabus is now available.

The 2022 Festival is scheduled to run over the first three weekends of March, starting on Friday 4th March. 


The Festival is a Registered Charity, number 510706.  It was established in 1936.  It is non-profit, managed and organised by volunteers. 

For the last seven years the Festival has received no funding from the Council.  It costs the charity over £20,000 to put on the Festival.  Please consider making a donation of any amount, however small, so that we can continue providing the opportunity for aspiring musicians and drama students.  Full details on our finances can be found at

The venue for 2022 is the Harrogate High School

We will be at
Harrogate High School (HHS),
Ainsty Road, Harrogate,
