YEC UK event venue

Natural light is not only good for you, it’s also good for your event.  Much of the YEC is flooded with natural daylight. This provides plenty of options to create perfect lighting for all types of events.  For events that require black out – electric blinds are in place that can be lowered and lifted at a touch of a button.

We love colour but our favourite colour has to be green!  Here at the Yorkshire Event Centre we strongly believe in environmentally friendly events. Sustainability has always been important to us. We work closely with local suppliers to offer a range of services.

Corporate social responsibility. Did you know, 100% of the profits from the Yorkshire Event Centre go to charity?  All our profits fund the work of registered charity, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society.  Whether you are holding or supporting an event at the YEC, you are helping us to provide support for children, teachers and people in the rural community, through education and development.
