In response to the Point of View in last week’s Advertiser, we fully appreciate resident’s concerns about noise from the showground and work hard to minimise disruption to the local community

We also promote all our events as widely as possible to ensure residents are aware of what will be taking place at the showground – from Great Yorkshire Show, to the Northern Shooting Show.

Events at the showground are worth £47 million to the local economy and events of all scale are held here every week, throughout the year.

All profits raised through leasing out the space or the venue – from Yorkshire Event Centre to Pavilions of Harrogate – funds the important charitable work of Yorkshire Agricultural Society so it’s vital we continue to attract large scale events where we can.
