Annual McMahon tournament, held near Manchester

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 to 2005, when that was held in Manchester, and has since become a 3-round McMahon. For some years it was held in Stockport and it was held in central Manchester in 2014/2015, before moving to the larger venue of Cheadle Hume School.

In 2015 it was sponsored by the Bank of East Asia and SAM Properties, with prizes:
The winner of the tournament received £100 and custody of a longstanding shield - the Red Rose Trophy - whilst the runner-up received £50. Cash prizes of £10 or £15 were awarded to others winning 2.5 or 3 games respectively.
