News that the famous singer has announced a date at HCC as part of her next tour is putting smile on faces in Harrogate's dormant entertainments industry during Covid.

That superstar is Paloma Faith and she will be visiting Harrogate as part of a 26-date UK tour in late 2021.

The announcement is a major boost to Harrogate's biggest venue whose future is regarded as crucial to not only to the entertainment sector but exhibition trade and the town's visitor economy.

Harrogate Convention Centre has seen its finances worsen during its use as a temporary hospital and, even if plans for a £40m-plus upgrade, go-head, its future remains uncertain.

Paloma Faith's tour will be in support of forthcoming fifth studio album Infinite Things which will be released this autumn.

The album was brought to life during lockdown with both long-time and new collaborators and explores relationships whilst ruminating on sickness and loss.

Her latest release Better Than This has just been releases as the lead single from the album.

Paloma Faith will appear at Harrogate Convention Centre on October 3, 2021.
