Sociable and Sustainable Events
Welcome to Bee Events. We believe in bringing people together to enjoy, experience and learn at amazing events. We do this by researching and delivering top quality events, all hosted at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate.
A Strong Heritage
We are a new arm of an established business; so you can be sure that we have good backing and solid experience in delivering successful large scale events. One of those events is the annual Great Yorkshire Show which attracts over 130,000 visitors, for a fun-filled celebration of food, farming and the countryside.
Bee Events was chosen as our name because bees are key to agriculture and life and are always busy plus they are very social; that is us to a tee!
The team at Bee Events have over 125 years of event experience between them, covering both trade and public shows; all the way from research and marketing to selling and operational delivery. With Bee Events you are in safe hands.
The home of Bee Events is the Yorkshire Event Centre, a vibrant and versatile venue on the outskirts of the spa town of Harrogate. YEC has 250 acres of land (an event planners playground!), two bright and airy halls offering 6,270m² of indoor event space, as well as thousands of free parking spaces.
Our central UK location positions us just 15 minutes from the motorway, a 10 minute walk from the nearest train station and a 25 minute drive from Leeds Bradford Airport.
Over 6 million people live within an hour’s drive of the YEC
The Harrogate District offers nearly 9,000 bed spaces
Making a Difference
100% of profits from Bee Events go to help fund the work of registered charity, Yorkshire Agricultural Society.
Everything the YAS does supports and promotes farming and the countryside throughout the North of England. Championing farmers as providers of high quality produce through, to paying for health checks for them. Education is a key aim for the industry and for children. The aim is to help ensure that the agricultural community is stronger, fitter and better equipped for tomorrow.
