For 2022, THE NORTH EAST GUITAR SHOW returns to the superb, purpose-built event complex at Rainton Arena, Mercantile Rd, Houghton-le-Spring DH4 5PH and will be on Sunday 20th March from 10am to 4.30pm.

The venue has been extensively refurbished by the new owners since we were last there two years ago. This prestige and spacious location is close to all the North East major routes, provides first-class facilities and has the advantage of easy load-in for exhibitors, excellent catering, licensed bar and free parking for all.

Based on the style of USA table-top exhibitions, the North East Guitar Show is first and foremost a retail event. New, vintage and pre-owned guitars, amps and pedals will be available to buy, trade and sell from a host of retailers, distributors, manufacturers, luthiers, boutique makers and private collectors - not to mention a full range of strings and accessories.

There will be bargains and special show deals. Free appraisals of instruments and amps will be available.

Plus bands and duo performances all day in the live music pavilion. This year the emphasis is on rock and blues music with John Verity Band, Saints of Arcadia fronted by guitar legend, Nick Jennison and the North East’s own high energy pop/rock sensations, Twister. By way of contrast, superb acoustic duo, The Huers present their excellent playing and thrilling harmonies working with Bose PA.

The event is sponsored by L R Baggs, Mooer, Hercules Stands, Ernie Ball, Scott Dixon Inc, Reflex Print, Wilkinson Direct, McCrerie Guitars and the Musicians' Union. PA is provided by Bose Ltd.
Registration is open to any business with guitar-related products including retailers, distributors, manufacturers, luthiers, boutique makers and private collectors and dealers.

The Show promises to be a treat for any guitar enthusiast.
