This concert has been planned to mark two important centennial occasions – the end of the Great War, and the death of two outstanding musicians closely connected with Harrogate:
Sir Charles Hubert Parry and Ernest Bristow Farrar. It also opens the appeal to finance the floodlighting of the exterior of both the Royal Hall and the town’s principal War Memorial.
The Royal Hall Restoration Trust and the Harrogate and District Improvement Trust are working together on this £400,000 project.
