Harrogate Theatre is devastated to share the news that Phil Lowe, our friend, associate director, pantomime director and co-writer, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday 13 October. 

Phil was an integral part of what makes Harrogate Theatre special, both to work at and visit. Our pantomime has truly sparkled since he came to the helm in 2007. He is irreplaceable. 

In his memory Cinderella will continue this Christmas. No one wanted to bring the party back to Harrogate Theatre more than him. 

If you would like to make a donation in Phil’s memory we have set up a Just Giving page in aid of Harrogate Hospital and its Cardiac Care unit. 


Our thoughts are with Phil’s wife, Caroline, their beloved boys, family and friends.
