Event Space Hire

Hire a space for your event at YSP

With exceptional artworks nestled in 500 acres of historic parkland, Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a truly unique venue. Our award-winning facilities and breath-taking views make for unforgettable weddings, celebrations and productive meetings. And just a mile from the M1, we're in a convenient location for guests coming from all over the UK and beyond.


Yorkshire Sculpture Park is an inspirational backdrop for weddings and civil ceremonies. Our dedicated team will guide you through every step to bring your vision to life. We can adapt our licensed auditorium for intimate gatherings of 30 or larger celebrations of up to 80, and dress it in any style. Ceremonies are available from 4pm, and the entire YSP Centre can be all yours for the evening.

Treat your guests to drinks and canapés on our beautiful 18th-century terrace. Follow that with contemporary fine dining in The Kitchen, with a balcony overlooking the rolling landscape. We’ll craft your menu using the finest local produce, and stock our bar with excellent wines, local beers and spirits.
