The Northern Lights Pinball Show is an annual event, held in the Autumn and co-located with Play Expo at Event City in Manchester. Northern Lights was started in 2011 by a small group of pinball enthusiasts and friends who came together to run a pinball show with a difference. The show is designed to appeal to a wide range of players, both seasoned pinball collectors and the general population who may never have played pinball before at all. From these humble beginnings the show grew to become what it is today. The Northern Lights Pinball Show is currently the largest pinball show in the UK with close to 20,000 visitors attending the 2015 Show.

The show is non-profit making and actively raises money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Since the show started over £15,000 has been donated by Northern Lights Pinball to this highly worthwhile charity.

As the popularity of the show has grown the continuation of this event would not be possible without the ongoing support of the UK pinball community. Our success is built on the support we receive each year from pinball collectors and enthusiasts around the UK. The show also receives support and sponsorship from a range of pinball companies worldwide. Thanks to everyone who helps and supports us.
