UKTV is to hold its first commercial live event, based on its Bangers and Cash format.

The UKTV Original series follows the work of Mathewsons, a family-run classic car auction house. Bangers & Cash Live will take place on Saturday 12th August and Sunday 13th August at Scampston Hall in Malton, North Yorkshire – just a few miles from Mathewsons’ Thornton-le-Dale HQ.

Visitors will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with Derek, Dave, Paul and the Bangers & Cash crew in a series of live Q&As. There will be a chance to admire some of the cars and bikes that have appeared in previous and future episodes of the series, as well as the pride and joys from classic car clubs from the local area and beyond, and to see some of the prized vehicles in the Mathewsons’ personal vehicle collections. Also, for the first time since the start of the pandemic in 2020, visitors to Bangers & Cash Live will be able to see a Mathewsons auction, with Derek himself putting several selected vehicles and memorabilia lots under the hammer.

Derek Mathewson said, “I can’t wait for Bangers & Cash Live! I’m always hearing how much the show means to people so it’s nice to be able to do something like this in person. We used to do our auctions in the village hall, and then since Covid we’ve only done them on the internet, but now we’ll do one in front of a several thousand people – unbelievable really! I’m also pleased that we can do this just up the road from us at Scampston and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone and all the vehicles and so on there.”
