Ogden of Harrogate returns as Spiegeltent sponsor

Harrogate International Festivals is delighted to announce that Ogden of Harrogate, one of the country’s best known family jewellers, is sponsoring this year’s Spiegeltent.

Ogden of Harrogate returns as Spiegeltent sponsor

With its bohemian mirrored walls, wooden floors, stained glass, red velvet booths and lamped lighting, the Spiegeltent is the perfect backdrop for this year’s carefully curated programme of cabaret, jazz, folk, soul, burlesque, dance and much more.

The Spiegeltent is back (June 28 – July 7) after a two-year break with a stellar line-up featuring Festival favourites The Gypsy Queens and the feather-ruffling House of Burlesque, along with British jazz singer Jo Harrop, who also makes a welcome return.

Divina de Campo will open with a night of comedy and cabaret this evening. Among the exciting new names appearing in the Spiegeltent are Leeds-based rising star Mica Sefia and the highly acclaimed Gildas and Maxwell Quartets, whilst Bradford-based Punjabi Roots make their Spiegeltent debut after delighting audiences at Harrogate Carnival last year.

Ogden, which sponsored the Spiegeltent in 2022 and the inaugural Royal Hall Residency five years ago, is known for its stunning collection of fine jewellery and distinguished clients. The James Street business is run by Robert and Ben Ogden who have a long affiliation with the Festivals over recent decades.

The current owners of the famous jewellery business are direct descendants of founder James Ogden, who in 1893 opened Ogden’s Little Diamond Shop. Within a few years it moved into its present location attracting a global clientele that included Winston Churchill, the Roosevelts and King George VI, to name just a few.

Ben Ogden said: “The Spiegeltant is a stunning venue that brings real sparkle to people’s lives and as such it feels like the perfect fit for us. Spiegeltents, like Ogden’s, have a rich history and we are looking forward to seeing the diverse array of talented musicians coming to Harrogate this summer.”

Sharon Canavar, Chief Executive of Harrogate International Festivals, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Ogden of Harrogate has once again chosen to sponsor the Spiegeltent.

“As an arts charity, we rely on funding and support from fantastic businesses like Ogden’s, and without their support we wouldn’t be able to bring the Spiegeltent and so many wonderful, world-class performers to Harrogate.”
