Kirklees Concert Season

Kirklees Concert Season 2020-21

The 2020/21 Kirklees Concert Season marks the second season in our journey towards the Year of Music 2023 which will put Kirklees and our partners firmly on the musical map and will establish Kirklees as a cultural centre for all forms of Music.

The Season as always offers a sensational range of orchestral, organ and chamber concerts at Huddersfield and Dewsbury Town Halls.

Ever committed to delivering outstanding classical music in the towns of Huddersfield and Dewsbury at affordable prices, Opera North and Kirklees Council embark on their 18th year in partnership to present a spectacular season featuring the Orchestra of Opera North and Borough Organist Gordon Stewart.

Orchestral season
From sensational symphony music to heart-warming, family-friendly concerts, the Kirklees orchestral season, underpinned by the exceptional Orchestra of Opera North, continues to bring a thrilling variety to the concert stage of our Town Halls. Showcasing exceptional talent, both homegrown and international, we're thrilled to bring you internationally acclaimed conductors and soloists right to your doorstep.

Lunchtime concerts
Gordon Stewart who is approaching his 30th year as Kirklees Borough Organist, is sure to pull out all the stops with simply breath-taking organ music this season! With lunch, wonderful anecdotes and a friendly welcome in store, it's no wonder these lunchtime concerts at Huddersfield Town Hall are popular among our patrons.

Ticket prices and booking information will be made available as soon as the 2020-21 Season is announced.
