The Northern was originally a two day event with accommodation at one of the Manchester University halls of residence. It was a European Grand Prix event in 1993 and 1994 instead of London. It then was part of the MSO from 2003, when that was held in Manchester, and has since become a 3 round McMahon and is now held in Stockport.

The prize is a shield, the Red Rose Trophy.
