Arts & Culture in Harrogate
Harrogate was once a favoured retreat of the British elite. A prim and proper spa town, this Yorkshire institution boasts a vibrant art and culture scene that belies its small size.
Harrogate is home to an extensive programme of regular events including gigs, theatre, visual arts, comedy, classical concerts and family shows.
Grab the popcorn and settle in for a screening at one of the town’s cinemas, there are showings of every genre, from Hollywood blockbusters to the latest art-house releases.
Or step back in time and journey through the Harrogate of yesteryear at the famous Royal Pump Room.
Once the place to enjoy a glass of Harrogate’s restorative spa water, this impressive building is now the town museum and a great window into the town’s illustrious past.
Alternatively, explore your artistic side at Harrogate’s Mercer Art Gallery, where regular rotating exhibitions are held showcasing the works of local talents, alongside collections from some of the nation’s best-loved talents.
