Venue Description

Yorkshire Event Centre is an £11m multipurpose event space in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. The venue is split across two versatile halls, set within beautiful, rural surroundings overlooking the Crimple Valley. We are the largest single event space in Yorkshire & the North East. Each hall has a bright & modern café and offers fabulous views across a stunning landscape. 250 acres of external space means we can offer thousands of free parking spaces, as well as lots of disabled parking. We are in the centre of the UK with easy access from the A1 and Leeds Bradford International Airport making us an ideal location for national events. The venue hosts a wide range of public facing events, from the fabulous Great Yorkshire Show and Harrogate Spring Flower Show, to the Northern Shooting Show, The Great Yorkshire Antiques Show and a fantastic Indoor Family Funfair. Please note – our venue is only open to the public when events are running. Our facilities are fully accessible to those attending Yorkshire Event Centre for an event. Please contact us to check open times and availability for access to our venue outside of event open days.


Yorkshire Event Centre has been designed as a level access venue with no corridors, gangways or internal stairs. We offer entrance ramps and double doors to both halls and automatic doors in the main entrance. All entrance steps are supported by handrails and both of our on-site cafes are located on the ground floor and are easily accessible. We have 6 disabled toilets across our halls and have recently installed a spacious Changing Places facility. We welcome assistance dogs on-site at events. We work with a locally based company to provide visitors with wheelchair and scooter hire.
