Our charitable connections
Did you know, 100% of the profits from all businesses across the Great Yorkshire Showground go to charity? All profits fund the work of a registered charity, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society. Whether you are holding or supporting an event at the Yorkshire Event Centre, having a wedding at Pavilions of Harrogate, stocking up on fresh local produce from Fodder, or enjoying a summer evening at Harrogate Caravan Park… you are helping us to provide support for children, teachers and people in the rural community, through education, development, and support.
