NE1′s inaugral Newcastle Motor Show took place July 11th & July 12th 2015 and was an incredible success with 100,000 visitors attending the event. Grey Street was closed to traffic during the two-day event to allow the public to marvel at the spectacle of an open-air car show with over 100 classic and modern motor cars on display.

NE1 Newcastle Motor Show 2015 was sponsored by Benfield Motors and North East Audi.

Our 2016 NE1 Newcastle Motor Show was even bigger and better than the 2015 show, expanding into more areas and supported by more Dealer Displays and entertainment. Highlights were too many to mention but the below photos give an idea of the range of cars, displays and activities throughout the weekend.
