Yorkshire Event Centre, Harrogate, HG2 8NZ
The Yorkshire Event Centre is a beautiful site on the outskirts of Harrogate, just off the A1. It’s famous for being the home of the annual Great Yorkshire Show which has been going strong since 1951 and has on average 130,000 visitors attending the show over 3 days so the infrastructure is second to none!
The venue is geographically right at the centre of the UK, so is accessible to shooters nationwide. We have plenty of visitor parking on hard standing ground close to the entrances, professional indoor exhibition halls, plenty of toilets and amenities and good old sensibly priced Yorkshire food and Yorkshire portions. The venue has a mixture of indoor exhibition halls and beautiful outdoor space where we will have our interactive shooting areas and outside exhibitors.
