Yorkshire Event Centre is an award-winning venue located on the outskirts of the beautiful spa town of Harrogate. With 6 million people living within an hour’s drive of the centre, it is in an excellent location and has an array of facilities led by a dedicated events team.
The event centre aims to offer the very best service, food and facilities backed by a warm Yorkshire welcome. Yorkshire Event Centre is home to a wide range of events throughout the year, ranging from popular consumer shows to corporate events, conferences, exhibitions and gala dinners. It has recently undergone an multi-million-pound refurbishment, creating a brand-new Hall 1, now the largest single event space in the North East.
Being a newer facility, run with a charity focus, the Yorkshire Event Centre takes responsibility to the environment very seriously. The building incorporates features such as solar panel heating, LED lighting even down to its toilet doors which are made from recycled plastic.
The two onsite cafes are both conscious about maintaining sustainability. There is also a Changing Places facility to help make our events more accessible for all, thousands of free car parking spaces, and as expected from a newer building, has facilities to enable the Yorkshire Event Centre to be fully accessible for all.
Situated just two miles from Harrogate Train Station, there are now six trains from London a day, and being found just 14 miles from Leeds Bradford Airport, makes the centre easy to reach via a range of transport routes. For people living nearer by, there is also a dedicated cycle path.
All profits raised from events held at the Yorkshire Event Centre fund the charitable work of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society which promotes and helps the industry. It organises teacher training courses and free educational days for youngsters interested in agriculture, through to providing free farmer health checks and support other local events.
There are currently 2 main Exhibition Halls, 250 acres of outdoor space and a purpose-built conference and banqueting suite, meaning that the Yorkshire Event Centre has an event space the right size for any type of event. Ideal for hosting exhibitions, conferences, dinners or team building events, the centre is based on the Great Yorkshire Showground near Harrogate.
Whether it’s a wedding for 500 guests or an exhibition catering to thousands of attendees, our halls offer 6,270m2 of versatile event space.
