The Yorkshire Event Centre is an award-winning event venue located just outside the beautiful spa town of Harrogate. The excellent location and facilities have accelerated the Yorkshire Event Centre to having an industry-leading reputation.

Located in a picturesque setting amid Yorkshire’s stunning countryside, The Yorkshire Event Centre combines functionality with natural beauty. Its strategic location provides easy access for visitors while offering a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

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.

The National Shooting Show is pleased to operate a scheme to provide one complimentary entry ticket for any adult unable to attend The Northern Shooting Show unaided. Visit the Box Office at the entrance to the event on arrival with the supporting documentation.

All free Carer/Personal Assistant tickets require evidence of supporting documentation. This is mandatory in order for the Carer/PA ticket to be issued.

Please bring evidence of at least one of the following (photo copies, scanned copies or pictures on your phone are fine);

Middle or Higher Rate DLA for care and/or mobilityReceipt of personal independence payment (PIP)Evidence of being severely sight impairedRecognised assistance dog ID card

If you require a free Carer/PA ticket in order to attend The Northern Shooting Show please purchase a standard ticket at the relevant price in advance. Please make your way to The Northern Shooting Show and come to the Ticket Resolution/Customer Service Desk adjacent to the entrance where your Carer/PA ticket will be issued and you will have fast track entry. Please do not queue at the on-day sales points as they are not able to issue the free Carer/PA ticket.

This facility is designed to allow any adult that is unable to otherwise attend The Northern Shooting Show to have free access for their Carer or Personal Assistant. We are afraid the carer scheme does not extend to children as they must be accompanied by an adult to attend The Northern Shooting Show.
