One of the most anticipated shows in the UK was back for its fourth year! Boasting a 28,000 square metre indoor venue in Manchester’s very own EventCity makes this event not only one of the most awaited shows but also one of the largest indoor shows in the UK and there was no way we were going to miss it!
We set off from Newcastle on the 29th in order to set up nice and early but decided to take a quick detour to visit our friends over at Polish and Glow, which is a must for any petrol head! We spent a few hours at the award winning detailing centre catching up with some old friends and just having some ‘chill time’ before the busy set up day which lay ahead.
Around 1pm we reached Event City the new-ish home of Fitted UK and commenced setting up. The day consisted of setting up our pop up shop and positioning the cars ready to be displayed to the public. It took some time but eventually we were all set! The cars were all polished and in position and the pop up store was stocked with our spring summer range including our new cotton candy pink hoodies.
Once set up was all complete we decided to head back to the hotel to chill out and slowly get ready for a night out in Manchester. We decided to head to Club Liv to support our close friend and official Kulturschock DJ; DJ Jax, who was making his debut as resident DJ at the nightlife hotspot. He did get us on the guestlist after all so it would be rude not to.
It was show day, the line-up we had was something else, a few head-turners and some very stealthy looking cars. We had Kev’s crazy, flame-throwing Scooby and Curtis’ wide-bodied Polo just to name a few and for the stealthy cars we had our very own Amaar’s 340i, Corey’s 435i and Harvey’s decked One Series – you could say we have a thing for Bimmers.
The show was in full throttle, with the shop being busy non-stop, luckily with the help of Corey and Harvey, we were open ‘on-time’ as we may have slept in. But, nonetheless the attention and feedback we received was amazing, we couldn’t have said it any better, the show was literally a show-stopper, the expectations were so high, the quality of cars was amazing. We can’t wait for next year and what Fitted have in the bag for 2018.
