Welcome To Skipton Music

In the light of the recent government advice regarding the Coronavirus pandemic and the need to avoid all non-essential social contact, we are very sad to announce that we will unable to hold the final two concerts of our 2019/20 season with the Brodsky Quartet & Martin Roscoe on Tuesday 24 March 2020 and Lara Melda on Tuesday 21 April 2020.

We are acutely aware, however, of the devastating economic impact of the current situation on the very freelance artists we aim to support through our voluntary music society. For this reason, we will be working with both sets of artists/agents to re-schedule these events as soon as we can identify times when it is safe to do so, and all previously purchased tickets will be automatically valid for the new dates. As this may take a while to organise, we do ask for your patience and understanding, and hope that in the meantime you are able to stay safe and well.

Skipton Music

Skipton Music is a voluntary music society, formed in 1947, and run by a dedicated team of volunteers. Recognised as one of the most successful organisations of its kind in the country, its main aim is to bring professional national and international musicians to perform six annual concerts in this historic market town at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.

Due to ongoing renovations in our usual venue of Skipton Town Hall, all concerts in our 2019/20 season will be held at Christ Church, Keighley Road, BD23 2AH. The Church has chairs, not pews, and there is an allocated seating plan. The building is wheelchair-accessible and there is a large public car park nearby.

There are many eating places in Skipton, hotel accommodation is plentiful and there is a late train to Leeds at 10.15pm. A good place to eat or drink before the concert is The Railway Skipton, which is next door to Christ Church. The Railway also has accommodation and we often go for a drink there after concerts – do feel free to join us!

For more information on our 2019/20 season (as well as previous seasons), please follow the links provided. In addition, you can find out lots more general and up-to-date news about our artists, concerts and activities by visiting the Skipton Music Facebook page.


All our concerts are open to the general public. However, most of our audience consists of season ticket holders. Season tickets are excellent value and guarantee the same seat for all six concerts. They are normally on sale between July and September.

Once all season tickets have been allocated, if there are still seats available, we also sell tickets for individual concerts from September onwards. Both types of ticket can be purchased here. Payments are processed through Paypal and can be made with a debit or credit card or through a Paypal account.

You can also buy tickets at the door. It is advisable to telephone to check for availability on 01756 799912.

We are always keen to welcome young people to our concerts, which is why tickets for accompanied school students cost only £1!
