Harrogate International Conference Centre Booking the Harrogate &
Tewit Band Rooms



The Harrogate Band and Tewit Youth Band are pleased to offer their band rooms to bands competing in the Finals on the weekend of 24/25/26 September 2010.

The tables on the right indicate the times the band rooms may be booked, at the rate of £25 per session. In the first instance only one session per band will be accepted - on a first come, first served basis. If there are any sessions still free in July, they will only then be offered to bands with existing bookings.

If you are interested, please email or telephone me to reserve your choice of sessions. Each session is 1½ hours allowing a good hour for rehearsal with time either side to set up and pack up.

If our facilities are not available for the dates/times you wish, there is a list of alterative venues in Harrogate and the district, with contact details that, hopefully, you will find useful.
