Date Change

The Ultimate Show will now take place on Sunday 13th August 2023. Please see the statement below.

We are externally pleased for the city of Liverpool on their successful bid to host the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest. Liverpool plays a huge part in bringing a variety of culture and events to the city, and we wanted to ensure we supported with this by rescheduling The Ultimate Show to make way for the 67th Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of Ukraine.

After careful consideration we are excited to say we will now be hosting the show on Sunday 13th August 2023 with even bigger plans for the automotive event. We very much look forward to seeing everyone then.

Tickets already purchased will automatically be valid for the new date.
