This year’s North of England Woodworking & Power Tool Show – affectionately known as the Harrogate Show – will be the largest since it began with more demonstrators and trade stands than ever before.

The show will be held in the newly refurbished Hall 1 at the Great Yorkshire Showground, where more than 40 top demonstrators will be in action each day and 100 companies and organisations exhibiting.

Under the direction of Product Training Manager Craig Steele, the Axminster stand should be an inspiring sight with many leading brands on show and being demonstrated. The line-up of demonstrators is equally impressive, headed by two of North America’s most experienced and popular hand tool experts.
