Half term fun activities

Hall 1 will have a range of fairground rides predominantly aimed at younger children, like Cup and Saucers and Fun House but also with Dodgems and Waltzers for bigger kids.   A great indoor idea when looking for things to do with the kids during half term.

Paul Ashton from the Yorkshire Event Centre said: “We’re delighted to welcome back the Harrogate Indoor Funfair which was a storming success last October half term. Visitor feedback was fantastic and we look forward to building on this success, with an event for every one of every age, whatever the weather!”

Indoor fun fair
There’s something for the whole family to participate in.

If you prefer to stay grounded you can enjoy a variety of fun fair stalls.  Try your luck on a selection of traditional prize and game stalls including hook-a-duck and the classic coconut shy.  Please note all these stalls will be priced per go.

YEC is located just outside Harrogate town centre with plenty of free parking. Pay £10 admission for either the morning session (10am – 1pm) or the afternoon session (2pm – 5pm).  Once inside all funfair rides are free.   The perfect opportunity to let the kids have some fun before heading into town or enjoying the local countryside.

John Lowery from Show Organisers, Events and Attractions Limited said  “We are looking forward to returning to the Yorkshire Event Centre with our indoor funfair concept. The event proved popular on our last visit with customers even returning two or three times and one customer who said it was the best £10 they had ever spent on their child.”

The funfair will run from Monday 25th February to Sunday 3rd March. Food and drink is available from our onsite café.  For further information see www.indoorfunfair.co.uk.
