The layout has grown by a third compared to the 2016 show. Check out the maps below to find out what’s on where.

Welcome to


The first Northern shooting show was held in May 2016 and it’s safe to say it was a great success! We had over 15,000 visitors attend the show over the weekend with around 200 exhibitors. We are now working on next year’s show Sat 6th & Sun 7th May 2017 to make it bigger & better!

This location offers easy access from the A1/M62 Crossroads, (Gateway to the North) and the venue boasts generous FREE onsite parking very close to the show halls. The timing of the Show and its location allows for a strong emphasis on outdoor shooting activities & demonstrations.

Our dedicated team promise to bring you a celebration of all shooting sports by providing an inclusive ‘one stop shop’ where all facets of shooting are represented from large gun manufacturers down to small specialist retailers.

We aim to create a show shooters will be proud of and provide a friendly atmosphere where you will meet other like minded shooters and have the chance to meet and learn from industry experts and see all the latest products to hit the market, and grab yourself a bargain with our VERY special ‘Show Only Offers’.

We will be holding the Northern Heat of the British Shooting Target Sprint National Series 2017

Target Sprint is an internationally recognised air rifle discipline that combines running with target shooting, (3x 400m Run, interspersed with standing air rifle shooting at knockdown targets).

British Shooting Events and Project Co-ordinator, Gorgs Geikie, said: “We feel this is an enticing way to get young people into the sport of shooting adding some much needed new blood, as well as an open environment to welcome back shooting enthusiasts.”


We will be holding the first UK Red Stag Call Competition at the show,

A first for any UK show the format is similar to calling competitions throughout the world – use any vocal method to call that you want and the call will be judged for realism and dominance, as well as originality and artistic flair!

It’s FREE to enter and the competition will be on the Saturday afternoon of the show. Each competitor will perform their best call down the valley of the showground whilst listened to by a few high profile judges.


Watch the video from our first show.
