The Harrogate International Youth Festival – Music & Performing Arts (HIYF) is an annual event held over Easter in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire. HIYF offers a unique opportunity for participants to perform with various ensembles at a selection of prestigious venues, playing to appreciative and enthusiastic audiences at a series of indoor and open air concerts.
HIYF is presented by ECE, an award winning company that creates enriching group educational, cultural, special interest and sports programmes, each with a unique point of difference and offering access to fascinating people, places and events.
Whilst the majority of our programmes are youth focussed and enjoyed as part of a group, we also offer specific opportunities to participate as individuals and for adult affinity group programmes.
In the world of corporate events management and business tourism our attention to detail, access to unique people, places and events means we are the ideal provider for bespoke corporate programmes.
The ECE team are passionately committed to delivering programmes that offer life enriching moments to be savoured for many years to come.
