We went last week to see the BBC Good Food Show , it was enjoyable. I have previously been to Birmingham which was on a larger scale and wowed. Harrogate is easy to find and the Theatre where the demonstrations were done was absolutely impressive.
The main issue for most people was the lack of seating in the main exhibition area where people could have something to eat or drink especially considering it was a food show,,,
people including ourselves were sat in the corridor between the two halls on the stairs and by the fire exit and security kept trying to move people on - but there was nowhere to move them to. There was also a mum who was nursing her baby she had to sit on the floor to feed her baby as there was nowhere for her to go..
Saying that it was still an enjoyable day out.

Was looking forward to a great show in my home town after visiting Birmingham a couple if times I guess i was expecting more from such a spacious venue. Not enough seating all fire exits were occupied by people resting and eating snacks. No where nice to eat a nice Good Food lunch, had to go to Debenhams for that. However the VIP area had loads of seats and space but was almost completely empty. We had to walk past this area after the supertheatre show ony to have to struggle through a massively crowded hall. So much space at this venue was wasted, a lot of missed opportunities for excellant reviews. Harrogate Royal Hall is amazing and the shows were excellant. Lets hope next time they consider everyone and bring on a decent cuppa and rest areas.

A great venue, plenty of people around to help with directions and they were very polite when controlling the queues for the book signing. However there was a lack of seating, we struggled to find a seat were we could just take 10 mins out from what is a busy day. Other than that we had a fab time. The theatre where we watched a very entreating Dave Myers, is a stunning building. The cloakroom is a good idea and to is the shop and drop. A great day out would defiantly go back again next year.

Visited the show Saturday. Parking not a problem five minute walk away £4.90 for 7 hours. Signage coming into Harrogate very poor lots of signs for Spring Garden Show but nothing for BBC event. At midday the hall was impossible far too many people could hardly walk along never mind look at anything. Surely a fire hazard must be a limit to how many people in there! Cookery demos very good in beautiful theatre next door.
