Visitors from across the UK descended on the Northern Shooting Show last weekend, proving it is actually in the ideal location to serve everyone.
From the moment the doors opened on Saturday, keen shooters flooded into the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate for the largest indoor and outdoor UK shooting show.
The event offered a hugely diverse range of shooting, from the Gamebore clay line for keen shotgunners to airgun have-a-goes and the HFT competition and from gundogs to the Airsoft Experience and even a rifle zone with reloading demonstrations.
Throw in the NGO Gamekeepers Row, the Yorkshire Auctioneer, Angus Ashworth, bushcraft and the new-for-2022 Hunt & Hall Ladies lounge and it was clear there was something for everyone during the two-day event.
And with free parking plus free children’s tickets, courtesy of BASC, along with some of the best-known names in shooting sports, it was perhaps no surprise that people travelled from as far afield as Ireland, Scotland, South Wales, Cornwall and Kent to make it one of the most successful Northern Shooting Shows ever.
James Gower, managing director of Stable Events, which was running. the NSS for the first-time this year, said: “Wow! The UK’s best-loved shooting show enjoyed truly national coverage from its Harrogate base.
“We were blown away by the distance people were prepared to travel, proving that this show really does have the right mix for shooters and is clearly far more ‘central’ than its ‘Northern’ tag would have you believe.
“We really can’t wait to put on next year’s show and we are already working hard on making it even better.”
