Great Yorkshire Showground
Both the Yorkshire Event Centre and the Pavilions of Harrogate, form the Great Yorkshire Showground. All profits raised at the Showground go straight to the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, a registered charity supporting farming, the environment, rural communities and educational activities for school children across the region.
The Yorkshire Event Centre strongly believe in environmentally friendly events and doing their bit to help the planet. Sustainability has always been important to the venue and was also an integral part of the design process when they built Hall 1.
