We’re very excited to announce that we are celebrating 10 years of successful One Big Day events next year AND we’ll be returning to Manchester, the city where it all started, to host The Big Event in 2017.
The Big Event will take place at EventCity at the Intu Trafford Centre on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 May 2017. The flagship, two-day event will showcase the UK’s biggest display of cars, scooters and powered wheelchairs available to lease through the Motability Scheme.
Free to enter, with free parking, there will also be plenty of friendly and helpful Motability Scheme advisors to chat to, including representatives from our Scheme partners, RAC, RSA and Kwik Fit. A wide variety of cars – including a range fitted with popular adaptations – will be available to test drive, allowing you to discover which vehicle best suits your needs.

We’re excited to celebrate such a milestone and so happy that that our One Big Day events continue to attract so many visitors ten years after they started! The events have come a long way over the last ten years, growing from one annual event to five summer shows across the UK. We’re really looking forward to being back in Manchester in 2017, the city where it all began, to mark the 10th anniversary year.
Since hosting our inaugural One Big Day at Old Trafford in 2007, we’ve welcomed more than 100,000 visitors to enjoy a fantastic day out for the whole family at one our events. We’ve helped visitors to find out more about worry-free mobility with the Motability Scheme and facilitated almost 8,500 test drives
Cars and Scheme specialists from a wide range of manufacturer will be on hand at the events
When you visit one of our One Big Day events you can do everything from gather practical advice about the vehicles available through the Scheme, to getting the real hands-on experience of a test drive. The Big Event is such a great opportunity for disabled motorists to see a wide collection of vehicles in one place and next year’s fun-filled anniversary event will definitely be one to remember.
Helpful Motability Scheme advisors will also be available at the events to speak to
As well as meeting Motability Scheme specialists for expert advice about leasing a car, scooter or powered wheelchair on the Scheme, there’s also lots of fun to be had. Younger visitors will be entertained with free face painting, balloon modelling and the chance to meet the Motability Scheme mascot Billy the Bear while the adults enjoy a complimentary cup of tea, coffee or a soft drink.
