We are proud to be able to offer an accessible venue for all visitors to enjoy.
The Yorkshire Event Centre has been designed to be a level access venue, great for wheelchairs and pushchairs. We offer entrance ramps and double doors to both halls and automatic doors in the main entrance. All entrance steps and ramps have handrails.
Paralympic World Champion Hannah Cockroft MBE DL and European Champion Nathan Maguire opened our Changing Places facility for disabled children and adults at the Yorkshire Event Centre.
The facility in Hall 2 makes the Showground more accessible during events being held at the Yorkshire Event Centre It has more space and the right equipment, including a height adjustable adult-sized changing bench and a hoist, for visitors who can’t use standard accessible toilets. This includes people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, as well as older people.
Both of our cafes are located on the ground floor.
We have 6 disabled toilets and additional accessible toilets. We have installed a spacious Changing Places facility. Fitted with a range of equipment to assist visitors. More information can be found by following this link.
We use pictorial symbol signage across the venue to direct visitors.
