If you live in Northern England and have a hankering to hang out with folks who love to dive, then check out the second annual Great Northern Dive Show scheduled to take place at Event City in Manchester on April 8th-9th.

Organizers have hired the world’s largest portable swimming pool which will have real-life mermaids, tech divers and other things going on.

Other activities include interacting with a dinosaur, Star Wars comic con characters, and a beach with plastic bottles that the attendees will have to remove before they can be involved in a shark tooth dig.

Additionally, there’ll be a fashion show, an Opening Ceremony with a singer, a Closing Ceremony with fire dancers, and a photo booth for memories.

Among the exhibitors will be some travel/vacation companies, dive education organizations and dive clubs.

Ruth Mort from H2O Divers says:

“This show isn’t like anything anyone has ever seen; it’s innovative, its scaring the industry and we don’t seem to have the backing of the main manufacturers . . . yet, but we are building a massive following with the diving fraternity and with non-divers.”

Organizers will have able-bodied and disabled divers available to talk to the public as well as people fluent in sign language to interpret the presenters.

Last year, the dive show attracted 2,882 visitors and organizers are expecting to at least double that this coming April.
