The summer sees the return of the Gypsy Queens and the feather-ruffling House of Burlesque in what promises to be an unmissable Harrogate International Festivals season.

French pop band the Gypsy Queens have gone from buskers to A-list entertainers favoured by the likes of Elton John and Rod Stewart and earning ,more than 100 million views on YouTube.

Their extensive repertoire of multilingual covers, with a vocal style likened to the Beach Boys and the Beatles, has made them firm festival favourites.

They are joined in the Spiegeltent this summer by House of Burlesque, the UK's top satirical showgirls and fellow festival regulars.

Led by the internationally renowned Tempest Rose, the stars of House of Burlesque return to Harrogate for a glamorous and uplifting burlesque cabaret, followed by the legendary silent disco afterparty.

The British jazz singer Jo Harrop, who has worked with the likes of Neil Diamond, Rod Stewart and Gloria Gaynor, also makes a welcome return. So, too, does Jimmy’s Night – a tribute to Harrogate’s legendary nightclub filled with cheesy tunes and delectable dancing.

The lavishly-decorated Spiegeltent provides a sensational setting for this dazzling programme of music, cabaret, burlesque, jazz and funk.
