To the rear of Skipton Auction Mart an area will be reserved for disabled parking – please ask the stewards to point out this area on arrival.

Entrance to the Mart from this area is completely wheelchair accessible. Toilets with disabled access will be available at the front and the rear of the Mart. There will be no charge for a companion assisting a wheelchair user.


We work closely with the local authorities to ensure the safety and security of all our visitors.

Bag checks will be in operation at this event.

To help minimise queues, we advise our visitors to bring the least amount of belongings possible. Please do not bring large items of luggage since necessary security checks of large bags, rucksacks or suitcases may hinder your progress into the show.

Thank you all for your understanding and cooperation.
