This Saturday promises to be a truly amazing day for live music fans in Harrogate. The third annual Fringe Crawl Day is being held to mark the end of this year’s Harrogate International Festival Fringe.

Organised by music fans in the town, the day will see 60 live acts playing from 1pm to the wee small hours in five different venues across the town centre.

It also coincides with a visit by legendary rock music photographer Gered Mankowitz who is opening a new exhibition the same night at RedHouse Originals gallery on Cheltenham Mount.

Highlights are set to include:

From London: Sulk play Monteys Rock Cafe. Four-piece hailed as the new Charlatans meets Stone Roses.
