Harrogate Theatre has sat at the heart of the town and community since 1900.
Every year our small team bring a programme of outstanding national and international arts and entertainment to Harrogate. We also provide inspiring creative opportunities for hundreds of local young people; support early-career artists and creatives through our Associate Scheme; and maintain our magnificent home - a grade 2 listed heritage asset at the heart of Harrogate.
Annually we deliver an estimated £17 million local economic impact, including £1.8m estimated secondary audience spend in Harrogate.
Currently, less than 7% of our annual income comes from public funding and is much less than many of our regional peers. What’s more as our programme is almost all toured in productions, the majority of the ticket money from our shows goes directly to the touring companies.
Harrogate Theatre therefore must rely on the support of individuals, companies, trusts and foundations to fund the large majority of our work and to help safeguard our future.
There are a number of ways you can support us, including by becoming a White Rose Member and benefiting from a range of exclusive perks such as behind the scenes experiences and pre-sales access to tickets. Please see the boxes below and click to read more.
Alternatively, we always welcome one-off/ monthly donations or you can set up your own fundraising campaign for us at www.justgiving.com/harrogate-theatre
