Corporate and Hire

For a strikingly different venue to hold exhibitions, conferences, product launches, receptions, come to the Yorkshire Air Museum. We have a large, historic site with a unique atmosphere that clients repeatedly tell us adds greatly to the outcome of their events. We also provide an ideal venue for private functions, Squadron and Association Re-unions and AGM’s and a whole host of events including Wedding Receptions and Blessings.

Centrally located in the region and easy to find from the national motorway network (just follow the brown museum signs), with unlimited free parking and no queues, the Museum offers excellent facilities for groups and events.

The main advantages:

  • Highly competitive rates
  • Good road access
  • Ample FREE parking
  • Quality in-house catering
  • Highly flexible meeting and function room
  • Wide, level access – excellent for setting up and disabled access.
  • The Elvington Room can cater for conferences of 200 in theatre style and accommodate a number of other styles and offers a superb free standing exhibition area. It is ideal for training seminars as it can be arranged in classroom style. The Main Display Hangar, with the unique features of a superb historic aircraft backdrop provides a stunning location and is perfect for larger exhibitions and has been used for a number of product launches by major companies and organisations including;

  • ASDA
  • Bentley & other car manufacturers
  • Motability
  • Driver Skills
  • City of York Council
  • Environment Agency
  • Yorkshire Water
  • Mercia Group
  • BBC Question Time
  • The Museum has become the most successful national venue for the Motability ‘One Big Day’ events, where a number of regional dealerships display their vehicles interspersed with the historic aircraft. Other stands and information points arranged in the main display hangar, with the Halifax casting its imposing background, provide information about the Motability scheme and the products and services available. In 2010, we will be hosting our fourth Motability event following the success of past shows.
