Gilbert & Sulivan
The Gilbert & Sullivan Festival was founded in 1994 and for the first 20 years was staged in Buxton Opera House in the Derbyshire Peak District. In 2014 the Festival moved to its new location in The Royal Hall, Harrogate in North Yorkshire.
The festival has become a truly English phenomenon, combining the glorious music, witty dialogue and political satire that characterises the ever-popular work of Gilbert & Sullivan with the backdrop of the regal spa town of Harrogate.
Watch this short film to give you a taste of what to expect:
Half day: An excursion to Harrogate, a fashionable former spa town that still retains the grandeur of yesteryear, with beautifully preserved buildings, green parkland, spectacular gardens and a myriad of boutiques and tea shops.
Full day: This morning through Airedale to reach Skipton where the main street is overlooked by the medieval castle. We continue on to Grassington, located in the heart of lovely Wharfedale before returning via pretty Pateley Bridge, nestled beside the River Nidd.
Half day: A half day excursion to pretty Holmfirth, forever associated with the popular TV comedy Last of the Summer Wine where you can discover Nora Batty’s house and Sid’s Café.
Evening: We also include two evening shows at the Gilbert & Sullivan Festival. We make our way to Harrogate for our performances at either the Royal Hall or Harrogate Theatre.
Sit back and enjoy the music, humour and eccentricity of the G&S works in fabulous surroundings.
