We need your support to continue entertaining and inspiring the community of Harrogate and beyond.

“I feel extremely lucky to have this venue on my doorstep.” Audience member.

As Harrogate’s home of outstanding entertainment and community outreach we create memorable experiences for you. From creating family memories at our beloved pantomime, to laughing with mates over a pint at our Comedy Festival. From seeing children bravely say their first words on stage to watching in awe as community companies come together in incredible song. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or you’re here for a great night out, we’re the venue of your favourite memories.

We’re proud to be part of a town which loves live performance and has taken us to their hearts. It’s your support, generosity and passion which keeps the theatre thriving. However, ticket sales alone are not enough to fund the wide range of work we do on and off stage. We invite you to join our incredible community of individual, public and private supporters to play your part in our future. Through your kind one-off donation, regular direct debit or by remembering us in your will, your generous support will make sure we can continue to be the venue of your best nights out.

“I haven’t laughed as much in months.” Harrogate Theatre and North Yorkshire Horizons Drama Project

We need to raise £600,000 a year to continue to run the building, nurture young people, provide essential support for artists and ignite the creativity of our community. Every donation makes a real difference. Your support means:

  • Over 78,000 audience members will enjoy a performance programmed and/or produced by us at Harrogate Theatre or in accessible step-free venues across Harrogate.
  • Harrogate Youth Theatre can continue to be an inclusive space where children and young people thrive being themselves… and other characters!
  • We can subsidise 7,500 tickets to our pantomime for schools and youth groups.
  • Local artists will be supported to create new, dynamic performances with free rehearsal space, mentoring and seed funding.
