Rudding Estate supports Harrogate International Festivals


Rudding Park Estate supports Harrogate International Festivals.

Rudding Park Estate is now a Premier Partner of Harrogate International Festivals. The Premier Partner scheme invites businesses to support the arts charity’s year-round delivery.

Owner of Rudding Park Estate, Mark Mackaness, said: “Earlier this year we introduced two children to the Festival’s Sunday Series concert with violinist Francesca Dego. We were so impressed by the quality of the performance, and this initiative to engage young people, that we felt compelled to become a Premier Partner. We’re delighted to support this world-class portfolio of music and literature festivals, as well as the outreach and educational work that impacts on so many in our region.”

Mark added: “It’s a charity we shouldn’t take for granted. We strongly believe local businesses should show their support and celebrate the Arts. It is one of the leading Festivals in the North of England and we should safeguard and treasure it to keep enriching the community that we live and work in.”

Rudding Park Estate is a widely diversified rural estate with a range of businesses, including office and residential property management and rentals, holiday apartments, green energy provision and farming services.

Sharon Canavar, CEO of Harrogate International Festivals, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to Mark and Rudding Park Estate - as an arts charity, only 2% of our income is from public money and so we are very welcome of this show of support from such an esteemed local business.”

Now in full swing the Festival continues through to the end of July with a varied schedule of concerts, the Theakston Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival and the Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival in the autumn.
