Alongside exhibitors, a full-day programme featuring British celebrity and retirement ambassador, Sir Jimmy Saville, as well as yoga, dance, tai chi and fitness classes were scheduled, as well as a demonstration kitchen and indoor bowls. Time of Your Life is one of five shows being launched by JP Events and Exhibitions over the next six months.A YEC spokesperson said its Toy Fair and Christmas sale events this week were going ahead. However, two events at its sister Pavilions of Harrogate venue – the Antiques and Fine Art Fair and a Cashmere Mill – have been cancelled due to the heavy snow.
