Whilst there is evidence of earlier male voice groups in Harrogate, Harrogate Male Voice Choir as we know it today evolved from the decision, in 1969, of an enthusiastic handful of singers to dedicate themselves to the laudable task of promoting male choral singing in the area and to the raising of funds for deserving causes through public performances.

Fifty years on, the aims of those early pioneers remain as the raison d’etre for some 50 members to rehearse each Tuesday between August and the following June and for a dedicated Musical Director and two accomplished Accompanists to share their professional expertise with a predominantly amateur membership.

Founded in 2002 by Mark Cleary, Short+Sweet began as a small festival of 10-minute plays in Sydney, Australia. Since this time, this unique brand has extended to multiple performance mediums; from theatre to dance, cabaret to Bollywood, musicals to stand-up comedy; all maintaining the single rule of performance, being presented in 10 minutes or less.
