Footman james 2019 = bad news

#1 Post by 1234dist » Fri Dec 07, 2018 9:46 pm

AMR Events Ltd, owners and organisers of the show, regret to announce that there will be no Footman James Classic Car Show Manchester at EventCity in 2019, nor at any time in the foreseeable future.

This most difficult decision is made in the face of significant compulsory third party cost increases, costs that would be simply impossible for the event to recoup via revenues.

We wish to sincerely thank you all for your wonderful support over the past five years. To build such a major event in such a short space of time has been an incredible ride. We’ve been received with huge enthusiasm and commitment from so many exhibiting traders, clubs, private car owners, sponsors, feature providers, press, contractors and of course the show visitors.

Above all, we owe a great debt of thanks to Footman James for their unwavering support, support we’ve been so fortunate to have right from day one. In fact, further demonstrating their commitment, we recently agreed another three-year headline sponsorship deal with Footman James, and they share our great disappointment that we’re not able to continue this adventure together.

The show is bowing out having been a great success, not owing a single penny, having entertained many tens of thousands of people, and having been ‘the’ showcase for the classic car scene in the north of England. It quickly became a ‘must do’ in the calendar and we know it’ll be sadly missed. Not least by us!

See you out on the road sometime!
