Living North LIVE returned to York Racecourse from 23rd–25th March 2018 to celebrate Yorkshire's finest designers, producers and retailers. It was a fabulous weekend of inspiring ideas for homes and gardens, delicious food and a unique shopping experience. Here are some of the highlights...
Homes & Gardens
At Living North LIVE we hosted a collection of the region's finest experts, designers and retailers in our stylish and contemporary Homes & Gardens Hall.
The Great Outdoors
Our outdoor garden exhibitors showcased exciting garden furniture, plants and accessories ensuring our visitors had everything they needed for the coming summer.
Spirit of Yorkshire
For 2018 Living North brought together a hand-picked selection of artists and photographers from across Yorkshire, in our Spirit of Yorkshire exhibition from the likes of Lucy Pittaway, Richard of York, Julia Ogden and Robert Dutton.
Talks from experts in the LIVE Lounge Lifestyle Theatre included tips on the cheap vs expensive paint by Hicks and Weatherburn, advice on how to up-cycle furniture by From Loft to Loved, as well as an inspirational talk and book signing by Con Curtis.
As always we were delighted to showcase some of Yorkshire's finest chefs – they never fail to impress when sharing their culinary skills with packed-out audience. Demonstrations included Tristun Prudden of Constable Burton Hall and Estate, David Nowell of Tickton Grange and Steph Moon, Consultant Chef for Redding Park.
Food Glorious Food
The way to anyone's heart is through their stomach and our fantastic food producers certainly did not disappoint with a range of artisan treats from sweets to local meats, fish and cheeses. The Living North Food Hall is the biggest in the region and it is constantly growing as a result of the continued support of Yorkshire's artisan food producers.
Gifts & Shopping
Our Living North LIVE was a shoppers dream, housing everything from fashion, beauty and more. We are proud that our designer makers and retailers are not typically found on the high street.
