Blowing our own trumpet since 1931

Harrogate Symphony Orchestra are delighted and honoured to announce that actor and director Hugo Speer, has offered his support to the orchestra's ongoing marketing campaign.

Speer who was born and raised in Harrogate, was approached by the orchestra asking for his assistance in publicising the orchestra and its concerts.

Speer has appeared in numerous TV series, The Bill, Heartbeat, Clocking Off, The Rotters' Club and Sorted to name but a few. However it was his appearance as 'Guy' in the hugely successful film The Full Monty which propelled him to super-stardom, leading to roles in the films Swing, Deathwatch and The Interpreter (with Nicole Kidman).

He also provides narration for the ITV series Cops with Cameras and the BBC series Seaside Rescue.

His directorial debut was with the short film 'Mam' (starring Josie Lawrence, Paul Barber and Ronan Carter), which has already picked up two awards, 'Glimmer Award' for 'Best Yorkshire Short' (Hull Int. Film Festival) and 'Best International Film' (Williamsburg Independent Film Festival, New York).

Hugo Speer is an incredibly busy man and Harrogate Symphony Orchestra are extremely appreciative of his time and support.

Harrogate Symphony Orchestra's Spring concert is on 24th March at The Royal Hall. Tickets available from Harrogate Theatre Box Office. Tel: 01423 502 116
