When is Newcastle Motor Show? Dates revealed for massive city centre event

The NE1 Newcastle Motor Show, the UK’s largest, free, open-air, city centre motoring event, is getting ready to return the city this summer for some more full throttle fun for all the family.

Dubbed locally as the ‘Goodwood of the North’, the Motor Show, taking place on July 8 and 9, will combine its unique formula of motoring exhibits, rare and exclusive vehicles with motoring themed events and activities, taking over more than two square miles of Newcastle .

The two-day event gives the public rare and exclusive access to cars and motor vehicles from across the UK and internationally, many have not yet been released for sale, or have previously only been exhibited at VIP-only international motoring exhibitions.

In Newcastle, the cars are exhibited on the streets with the public able to get up close to the vehicles, talk to the experts and owners as well as enjoying the spectacle.

To accommodate all the new elements of this year’s event, more areas of the city will be involved with themed zones mapped out for different types of vehicles and activities, from supercars, rally and racing cars to showstoppers from some of the UK’s leading car dealerships.

Private exhibitors from across the region and beyond are on board to line Newcastle’s majestic Grey Street offering the public rare access to some of the world’s most exclusive cars, in one of the world’s finest streets.

Over 104,000 people attended across the weekend last year with exhibits including the Renault Sport Formula 1 racing car and the Aston Martin DB11 drawing huge crowds across the weekend.

Stephen Patterson, Director of Communications at NE1 said: “The NE1 Newcastle Motor Show exploded onto the motoring scene and immediately created a unique addition to the UK’s motor show calendar.

“This year, the magnitude of the event is increasing and the whole city will feel part of the activities, a true festival of motoring with something for everyone.”

Michelle Caveney, Head of Business at Lloyd Newcastle BMW, who have come onboard as Dealer Partner for 2017, said: “We’re delighted to be named as Dealer Partner for this year’s NE1 Newcastle Motor Show.

“The event made a huge impact last year and we are keen to play our part in making the show even bigger and better this year.

“We’re already lining up some jaw dropping exhibits and we’re looking forward to working with NE1 to put Newcastle and the show on the motoring map.”

This year’s event will run from 10am – 4pm each day.
