After two years at EventCity near the Trafford Centre in Manchester, the Great Northern Dive Show is on the move – to Emirates Old Trafford at Lancashire County Cricket Club. Why the change on location? Organiser Ruth Mort said she likes to keep things fresh and so opted for a new venue. Is chopping and changing a good idea when the event is only in year three? Only time will tell, but as with previous years, there is plenty going on for divers and non-divers alike.

Northern 1

The 2018 event is on Saturday 17 February (9.30am to 4.30pm) and Sunday 18 February (9.30am to 3.30pm), and tickets are now available – check out Daily tickets are £10 for adults (with a £1.37 admin fee) and £5 for children (with a 98p admin fee).

Northern 2

Last year it was Darth Vader, Stormtroopers and an over-friendly T-Rex, this time around, showcasing the event are two stars from Games of Thrones – Ross Mullan and Russ O’Hennessy – along with wall-climbing zombies and a surf simulator, and I’d expect all of 2017’s favourites to be making a welcome return as well.

Northern 3

As well as a selection of exhibition stands, there is also a roll-call of speakers, including Lanny Vogel, Ellen Cuylaerts, Mark Powell, Chantelle Taylor-Newman, Garry Dallas, Ian France, Richard Walker, John Kendall, Claire Dutton, Tracy Timperley, Paul Duxfield and Tim Cutter.
