The Knitting & Stitching Shows are accessible for disabled visitors. We use 6 halls at the Harrogate Convention Centre, most of which are on one level. There is a wheelchair lift to access Hall Q.
There are several disabled toilets at the venue, and we try to keep aisles as wide as possible. Please be aware that this is a very busy show and it can get very congested.
