Top Gear Live is coming soon!
Attention Top Gear withdrawal symptom sufferers - we have just the thing to tide you over till next year’s new series. Top Gear Live.
If you’re free (and you really, really should be) from October 25 to October 28, know the way to Birmingham’s NEC and want to see Jeremy, Richard, James and Stig battle fire, stunts, and probably each other, you should pop down.
For your delectation, there’s our tribute to 50 years of James Bond (featuring many Aston Martins). Clarkson’s also thrashing it out with the Stig (with the help of our armed forces), you may witness a new world record from the manpart-endowed Top Gear Stunt Team, and there’s an exclusive look
at a new sport - sidecar polo (what could possibly go wrong?).
We’ll also be celebrating ten years of Top Gear TV, which is the world’s most widely watched factual television programme. Believe it or not, the first episode of the current format debuted on BBC2 way back in October 2002.
Andy Wilman, Top Gear’s Executive Producer says: “We talked to The Stig about jumping out of a cake but his left elbow started twitching, which is always a warning of impending massive violence, so we abandoned that idea. In the end we decided we’ll show a lovely and mostly tasteful film
celebrating our achievements over the last ten years. Firstly because it’s full of good things, and secondly the audience can have a laugh at how much the presenters have aged. Except for James, who was already very old.”
As well as the boys’ arena performance, you can see the equally spectacular track show, also featuring Stig. Then there’s the Top Gear Live Exhibition - an interactive automotive showcase with vehicle manufacturer displays, gear, gadgets plus a selection of cars you may recognise from the telly.
If you’re a 5 to 15-year-old accompanied kid, you’ll be thrilled to learn that you go free on Thursday and Friday, too. And we’ll be offering special family tickets for both Saturday and Sunday if you can’t make it during the half-term week.
Full details of all Top Gear Live tickets can be found on the official topgearlive.co.uk website. Tickets can be booked online or by calling 0871 230 5588 with adult admission prices starting from £49*.
