One Big DayThe One Big Day event at Yorkshire Event Centre is giving disabled motorists and their families the chance to explore their motoring options and find out all they need to know about the Motability Scheme. Taking place on Saturday 13 August 2016 between 9am and 4pm, the One Big Day event in Harrogate will showcase a comprehensive display of vehicles for disabled people.

Returning to Yorkshire Event Centre for the third year, the One Big Day event will be held in the brand new exhibition hall at the centre. The new ‘Hall 1’ opened in June and is the largest single-span space in the North East of England – the size of three and a half Olympic swimming pools. The event space is all on one level which means it’s accessible for all visitors.

There will be a range of over 50 cars at the event from 13 leading manufacturers including Vauxhall, Ford, Nissan and Peugeot. In addition, over 30 scooters and powered wheelchairs will be on display as well as 15 Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles and products from adaptation suppliers. Visitors can also get advice from Motability Scheme advisors and gather useful information from Scheme partners – Kwik Fit, RAC and RSA Motability – as well as advice from The Forum of Mobility Centres and Disabled Motoring UK.

Visitors to the One Big Day event in Yorkshire can take to the wheel and test drive a range of cars, many of which are fitted with the most popular driving adaptations available on the Motability Scheme. Test drives take place with a professional driving instructor and are available to book on the day, all visitors need to do is to bring along their driving licence and choose which car to test out.

Free to attend and with free parking for all visitors, the One Big Day event in August is fun for all the family with face painting, balloon modellers and the chance to meet the Scheme’s mascot, Billy the Bear. Plus, everyone is treated to a free cup of tea or coffee when they arrive.
