The North West Guitar Show

Now in its 22nd successful year, the UK’s longest established guitar show, the North West Guitar Show, returns to its most popular venue yet at Haydock Park Racecourse Exhibition Centre on Sunday 19th May 2019 from 10am to 4.30pm.

Only two minutes from junction 23 of the M6 motorway, this prestige and spacious location is close to all the North West major routes, provides superb facilities and has the advantage of easy load-in for exhibitors, excellent catering, licensed bar and free parking for all.

Building on record attendance and sales in 2018, this year’s show will be the biggest yet with more than 120 dealers and exhibitors with product to sell in four large exhibition halls. The north of England’s biggest one day guitar show.

Forged in the style of USA table-top exhibitions, the event brings together major retailers, distributors, manufacturers, luthiers, boutique specialists and even private collectors all with bargains in everything guitar related. It is a unique opportunity to buy, sell and trade new, vintage and second hand guitars, amps, effects and accessories and to be entertained by live music from top guitarists in the 400-seater live music hall.

As with all the NGS exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations and live music will be available in separate areas throughout the day, with some of the top names in the industry performing in an intimate setting.
