About Us

Skipton Music promotes a varied programme of concerts from October to March and also a concert for local primary school children. The concerts are always well-attended and the standard is consistently high.

Skipton Music plays a large part in the cultural life of Skipton and the Craven area. Since 1947 Skipton has been privileged to have heard classical Chamber Music presented by musicians such as Kathleen Ferrier, Jacqueline du Pré, Nigel Kennedy, Tasmin Little, Steven Isserlis, Kathryn Stott, Manchester Camerata, Gould Piano Trio. We also give a platform to up-and-coming performers: recent memorable evenings have been recitals by trumpeter Alison Balsom, Heath String Quartet, mezzo soprano Jennifer Johnston, Leeds Piano competition prizewinner Anna Tsybuleva, violinist Alina Ibragimova.

Our continued success is due in large part to our ‘members’ who buy a Season Ticket in advance. The concerts are, however, also available to non-members who are always welcome. Tickets can be reserved beforehand or bought at the door. For more information please use our contact form or telephone the Box Office on 01756 799912.

Concerts are held in Skipton Town Hall, BD23 1AH. New seating has been installed, comprising 112 stalls seats plus 156 seats in 11 tiered rows. The building is fully wheelchair accessible and there is a large car park behind.

The society is run by a voluntary committee and is grateful to the many corporate and individual patrons whose sponsorship and support enable us to continue and flourish.
