*Raffle Prizes needed* Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity are seeking luxury prizes such as gift vouchers, experiences, stays away, meals or similar to raffle off at The Harrogate Proms event Saturday 27 June 2020, at Harrogate Convention Centre

This event will be held at Harrogate Convention Centre on 27 June 2020 at 7.30 pm and compered by the popular BBC Look North broadcaster Harry Gration, an event absolutely not to be missed!  Harrogate Symphony Orchestra (HSO) and Harrogate Choral Society (HCS) – are joining forces in an ambitious fundraising project in aid of HHCC.   All profits from this special showcase concert will go directly to the charity. 

Working so closely with the HSO and HCS to bring together what will be an unforgettable evening and that both have chosen HHCC as their charity of the year.  To have a dedicated concert on top of this is the icing on the cake. Tickets are now on sale.  We are looking for corporate sponsors for the event and have a bespoke sponsorship brochure available for information.  The HHCC team are so excited about The Harrogate Proms being performed for the benefit of our very special charity, all the funds raised from this incredible evening will make a huge difference to patients and their families.

The concert, conducted by Andrew Padmore (HCS) and Bryan Western (HSO), will feature a feast of operatic and Proms favourites, as well as other popular works such as Carl Orff’s O Fortuna, Verdi’s Grand March from Aida, Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Jenkins’ Suite from The Armed Man and Rutter’s Look at the World.  All this, as well as favourite Proms items with the traditional audience participation, which will guarantee a memorable evening for all.

Bryan Western says, “What an occasion this will be: to sing with a huge choir, a full 100-strong symphony orchestra in Harrogate’s premier venue and, at the same time, to raise much-needed funds for our local district hospital.”
