Christmas Event 2017

Our first ever event at Acklam Car Centre went down a treat with sparkling entertainment, festive food & drink as well as a full size hog roast!

After months of preparation and planning, we hosted our first ever event here on site at the dealership. The weather was brisk complimented by glorious rays of sunshine, perfect weather for our festive hog roast and drums of mulled wine!

The day started bright and early and all staff began preparing the site for the day ahead. Liam himself even got involved in tying up balloons, a rare sight to behold! The music filled the atmosphere and the air transformed with the scent of the mouth watering hog roast as the caterer's began to pitch up on the forecourt. 


As we drew closer to opening the showroom had transformed into a festive landscape, the balloons perfectly complimented the glistening of the superb range of metallic and xirallic paintwork both car enthusiasts and non car enthusiasts could appreciate. 

Our focus was to create an experience that nobody had previously encountered at Acklam Car Centre and that would leave a long lasting impression as to how far we have grown as an independent dealership. We would like to thank every single person that attended the event as we haven't experienced such an incredible day in the dealership since days gone by. 

In terms of sales, the event was a bigger success than we could have imagined. We brought together a variety customers with their next dream cars. There was a real buzz with excitement in the dealership from the roars of a 700bhp RS6s to the silent glides of a Hybrid Lexus, the selection of cars in stock is second to none in the whole wider region of Teesside.


As a bit of fun we filled our Porsche 911 Carrera 4S with a select number of balloons. We were allowing customers to take guesses at how many balloons were in the car in return for a £2 donation which would then be handed over to charity once the prize had been drawn. The correct guess would win a £60 christmas hamper to enjoy over the festive period and consisted of luxuries such as crackers, cheese, wine and much much more.

Again we would like to thank all who helped make this such an exciting and successful day. We look forward to hosting many more events in the future and can't wait to see all of your faces there!
