2018 show dates revealed

The UK Wedding Event is pleased to confirm a number of wedding fayre dates for 2018, with more announcements expected in the near future.

We know how it important it is for couples and wedding professionals to plan ahead which is why we always try and make public details of our plans as soon as possible, even with a host of exciting shows still to come between now and the end of 2017.

Our flagship shows at York Racecourse will again be taking place in mid-March and October, while for a fourth year running West Yorkshire will be hosting another equally big event with 100 exhibitors at the Centenary Pavilion at Leeds United’s Elland Road.

We are also delighted to reveal an extension to our partnerships with The Crown Hotel in Harrogate and Mercure York Fairfield Manor Hotel, with double dates for Burn Hall & York Pavilion to be released shortly as well as a new show at beautiful Sun Pavilion in Harrogate.

Valentine’s Love at The Crown Hotel

So what are you planning to do for Valentine’s Day?

Have you proposed to your other half yet?

The fact that you have found us on our wedding fayre website would suggest that you have, so many I point you in the direction of the Crown Hotel in Harrogate this Sunday.

It’s been another extremely busy few months for The UK Wedding Event, so apologises for the lack of updates with the blogs recently, but make sure you regularly check our Facebook page and Twitter feed for the latest news, pictures and reviews.

Please Email us if you would like to blog here as contributors are always welcome, whether you are a brides-to-be planning your own big day or a wedding supplier who has some words of wisdom to share with you all.

Our most recent wedding fayre was at the Mercure Fairfield Manor Hotel near York, and to say it was a success is an understatement. We were thrilled by the turnout for our first ever show at the venue as nearly 500 visitors came through the door to see our 40 strong team of exhibitors!

In light of such a staggering response from the general public and positive vibe from wedding suppliers who attended, it was a no-brainer to book in for another show at Fairfield Manor on Sunday 4th September.

Our immediate challenge now is to see whether we can surpass that figure at The Crown Hotel for what is our third wedding fayre ever at the venue.

Once again we have assembled another fine array of top wedding suppliers to offer choice and quality to our visiting bride and grooms, so do take a moment to check out our exhibitors list by clicking here.

Admission on the day is free when doors open from 12pm ahead of a 4pm finish, but by pre-booking your tickets, you also stand a chance of winning some top prizes courtesy of The Crown Hotel.

Of course the countdown is very much until our big York Racecourse show on Sunday 20th March, an event that continues to go from strength to strength, while in the last few days another new date has been added to our diary with Burn Hall York set to provide the setting for a brand new wedding fayre on Sunday 31st July.

Until next time, take it easy and good luck with your wedding plans!
